Meet the Team


Zurich Life's Underwriting team is well established and strong reputation in the Irish marketplace. The company employes a total of 10 Underwriters, 6 of which have been working in Underwriting for more than ten years giving them significant experience to draw from.

Underwriting is the assessment of risk to ensure that the correct premium is paid to reflect the risk of the insured event happening. Our Underwriters evaluate the risk of each case submitted to us. This assessment is based on a number of factors including health, family history, occupation & pastimes while also looking at the financial need for the cover being requested.

The evidence we can request includes client questionnaires, reports from GP's and in some cases medical examinations if required. Our Underwriting team then assess this evidence in a timely manner in consultation with the companies Chief Medical Officer (CMO) to ensure a speedy and equitable decision is made on all applications.
