Ross Casey, Non-Standard Household Underwriter at QIP Underwriting, takes to the hot seat this month in Blink Insider.

In a short sentence, tell us what you do in your current role?

I am a Non-Standard Household Insurance Underwriter for QIP Underwriting.

Did you choose the insurance profession, or did it choose you?

The insurance profession chose me, I wanted to move back to my university town of Southampton and an underwriter role came up at Aviva in HNW.

What is something that people are obsessed with, but you just don’t get?


What is your biggest frustration with modern technology?

When it fails.

What do you do when you’re not working?

I have two young daughters so they keep me busy, but I love sport and I support both Arsenal and Bath Rugby.

What was the last book you read, or movie/box set you watched? 

Marcella, The Office US, Walking Dead, Line of Duty.

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide what music to listen to?

I do not really have one band, would just Spotify best of the 80’s.

Past or present, which five guests would you invite to your dream dinner party?

Ricky Gervais, Ian Wright, Peter Kay, Alan Partridge and Jimmy Carr.

What is on your bucket list?

I want to visit the Scottish Islands, Iceland and Canada. 

Finally, why is it a great time for brokers to consider a conversation with QIP Underwriting?

We are coming into the market at a time when many insurers are withdrawing. We want to give the brokers an alternative option in providing non-standard household policies where other providers are unable to provide terms. Finally, we try to be as flexible and as approachable as possible.
