David Maule, a well-known and highly respected credit and political risk insurance broker with specialist insurance and reinsurance firm Miller Insurance in London is retiring following 43 years in the industry.
At Miller Insurance, where he had been since April 2017 he was a leading figure within the credit and political risks team heading the development of business emanating mainly from Germany and China. Before Miller he had spent much of his working life in Germany and France. David was always a keen debater at TXF events and his sharp mind and comments will be sorely missed from TXF conferences.
Speaking to TXF, David had these parting remarks: “When I started, the ‘market’ consisted of only two Lloyd's syndicates offering investment insurance and bond unfair calling cover only. Non - payment risks were specifically excluded.
- The maximum available tenor for any risk was three years.
- Communication was by phone, mail or telex. The fax machine had yet to be invented.
How times have changed! It has been a pleasure being involved in this business from its infancy and long may it continue to flourish.”
