Chris Ryder Richardson FCII

Head of Underwriting

Throughout his career, Chris has held underwriting positions for a number of Lloyd's syndicates, looking after accounts that included international non-marine reinsurance business, both proportional and excess of loss as well as direct and binding authority business. He was also given the responsibility of a number of high-profile run-off syndicates.

In 2001 Chris joined Euclidian to help grow the existing book and in 2004 formed part of the management buy-out team that created Vantage Insurance.

In his own words, Chris' weekends are spent hacking his way around golf courses with good friends who apply ‘friendly rules’, rushing around tennis courts in an attempt to catch increasingly-fast tennis balls and hoping to finish in the top half of the fleet whilst sailing competitively in his laser dinghy.
