In episode 53 of the Global Captive Podcast, supported by legacy specialists R&Q, Richard is joined by Philippe Gouraud, formerly of AXA XL and AIG and now CEO of Rising Edge, Ltd.

Philippe discusses his recent experience as a captive non-executive director, the D&O market and the new boutique underwriting agency focused on directors’ and officers’ liability insurance and risk management that he launched earlier this year.

There is also a new segment from a previous GCP Short on captive ratings. Richard is joined by Daniele Zucchi, Managing Director of Sigurd Ruck, the Swiss-domiciled captive owned by Saipem, and Ghislain Le Cam, a Director of Analytics at AM Best Ratings Services. The trio discuss what impact the pandemic has had on Saipem’s captive and what ramifications AM Best has had to look out for in relation to captive ratings and the pandemic.
