Sebastian de Zulueta
Innovation Facilitator at Lloyd's
Startupbootcamp InsurTech London Mentor
Began insurance career on the publishing side with the Insurance Insider, an enjoyable experience which taught me a lot about the market. Accepted internship program in Santiago, Chile with a Reinsurance broker named Conosur Re, these 6 months gave an exclusive insight into the highly competitive but exciting P&C market-place in South America. Following Chile accepted graduate scheme with Tysers (broker) in London where I trained for two and a half years (3-4 months per department) in all classes of business but marine. During my time with Tysers set up network and events group Market Minds, hosting regular events for up to 100 market practitioners. Market Minds then hosted our first InsurTech conference in June 2016 at WeWork Moorgate. Following this success, Market Minds continues to host InsurTech/London market events, most recently and notably the Future Leaders debates and endeavours to represent the future leaders of the london market and build partnerships between the London Market Practitioners and the growing InsurTech contingent.
After a brief 6 month stint with another broking house, producing Eastern European P&C business to the London Market, I joined Lloyd’s and was seconded to the LMG Innovation worskstream under the TOM program. I act as an innovation facilitator fostering an innovation community in the London Market and building relationships with the InsurTech community. I would like to see a modernized and digital London Market and this program will allow me to help catalyze this change.
