A look at the Insurance Museum
Welcome to Insurance Covered! The podcast that looks at the inner workings of the insurance industry with the help of expert guests.
This episode we are joined by industry legend Reg Brown and we will be looking at the Insurance Museum initiative as well as exploring Reg's distinguished career in insurance.
We start by talking about how Reg came to work in insurance and the roles he has held, including his time as President of the Chartered Insurance Institute and Underwriter of Syndicate 702. We also discuss the vast change he has seen in the industry throughout his career.
We then move on to the main topic, namely the Insurance Museum. Reg explains his role as Chairman, a position he has held since 2019 and why he has given his backing to the campaign. He explains his desire to be a part of establishing an Insurance Museum in London comes from a feeling of wanting to give back to the industry. He calls on his time mentoring young people entering the industry as a driving force behind wanting to create the museum and have somewhere for people to learn about the rich history of the insurance market.
"Insurance is such a key part of London and there is a nowhere for the history to be on display and the stories to be told".
Reg explains that the first fundraising campaign for the establishment of the Insurance Museum started on the 7th September and will run until 7th December with the aim of raising £3 million, which will cover the property and running costs for 4 years. You can pledge to donate here.
