The PPP – Insurance Underwriting

Welcome to season 4 of the podcast! In the first episode Kathryn, along with special guest, Peter Maynard from Select X, are taking a deep dive into underwriting manuals.

Peter shares his career in underwriting and explains what an underwriting manual looks like, the types of risk that they include, how underwriters use them and the role of automated underwriting.

The key takeaways:

  • Automated systems are good, but you can’t beat a human underwriter!
  • Underwriting manuals are technical guides of how to assess risk, but there should be some wiggle room in decisions.
  • The more you know about a person’s ‘risk’, the more likely you are to get a realistic indication of insurance terms.


Next time, Roy McLoughlin is back with me for his first outing of season 4. 

Remember, if you are listening to this as part of your work, you can claim a CPD certificate.
