Julian Enoizi is the new Global Head of the Public Sector Practice at Guy Carpenter, the world-leading reinsurance broker. In a role specially created in April 2022 to make use of his exceptional public sector knowledge and profile, Julian works with public sector clients at national, state and local level across all geographic sectors served by Guy Carpenter and other Marsh and McLennan businesses. His focus is on understanding the particular insurance and reinsurance needs of public sector organisations and their private sector partners, and identifying existing and new insurance solutions which will enable Guy Carpenter to deliver the analysis, advice and data needed to optimise public sector decision-taking. Julian is based in London, but travels globally to meet current and potential public sector clients.
Julian was previously CEO of Pool Re, the UK Government-backed terrorism reinsurance mutual, for almost a decade. He joined Pool Re with the mandate to bring a fresh perspective to a company that had changed little since its formation in 1993. He implemented a strategic change programme and led the negotiations with HM Treasury in two formal reviews of Pool Re’s role. He repositioned the company as a champion of innovation and an international thought leader, spearheading a broader and more sophisticated underwriting proposition requiring an amendment to an Act of Parliament; the purchase of the world’s largest terrorism retrocession programme; the launch of the world’s first terrorism Catastrophe Bond; and investment in a partnership with the Home Office in risk mitigation projects.
Julian is a graduate of the Universities of Birmingham and Limoges, holding a degree in Law and French Law, and a Diplome D’Etudes Juridiques Francaises. His fluency in French and Italian led him initially to practice law in London, Milan and Brussels. His subsequent experience in the insurance industry spans the markets in Lloyd’s, London, the UK regions and Continental Europe. His early career saw him work at Chubb, at AIG Europe, at CNA as President of its Continental European Division based in Paris, and then as President and CEO of CNA Europe. In 2009 Julian became President and CEO of Argo International and from 2011 to 2013 was CEO of a private equity backed venture. He has always focused on businesses undergoing important strategic transitions under challenging circumstances.
Julian has extensive experience of working on international and governmental advisory boards, including the Advisory Board of the OECD International Network on the Financial Management of Large-scale Catastrophe; the CBI’s Financial Services Council; the UK’s National Preparedness Commission; the Clean Growth Leadership Network; and the Business Resilience Taskforce where he chaired the Cyber and Terrorism sub-committee on behalf of the Department for International Trade. He founded the International Forum of Terrorism Risk Reinsurance Pools, which now has twelve members across five continents, and is an active international advocate for the importance of public/private partnerships and international collaboration to tackle difficult-to-insure perils.
Outside work, Julian has been Chairman of the City Forum and of the Princes Trust Insurance Leadership Group. He is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Insurers and has been awarded the Freedom of the City of London. He is a visiting Professor at the University of Cranfield, and an Executive in Residence at the University of Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies where he chairs the Systemic Risk Research Consortium. Julian is the current President of the Insurance Institute of London.
A keen golfer, Julian is a member of both the Royal Automobile Club and the Lloyd’s Golf Club. He is married to Rachael and lives in Sussex with his three university aged children.
