Steven Ensign

Head of Direct Property Facultative & Automatics

Since beginning my insurance career in 1990, I have benefited from working in the various sides of the industry.

I starting as a multi-lines underwriter before becoming a broker in the 90’s. I returned to underwriting as a property reinsurer in 1998. My 10+ years of employment at Catlin were the best of my professional career, so when the opportunity arose to join Convex US, I had to jump at it. There are good people everywhere in this business, but Convex US has a way of bringing them together to create a special kind of working environment. At Convex US, it is also truly about underwriting. The culture is open and transparent, with a family feel that a lot of companies struggle to develop.

Who we do business with

Our direct property facultative reinsurance covers a wide range of insurers across the US, including smaller mutual type carriers to the larger national sized companies.

Regardless of size, every opportunity is underwritten with the same level of attention and detail. We value the relationships with our clients and look to them as partners. For semi-automatic or automatic opportunities, we welcome opportunities from both a direct basis with an insurer or through a broker.

How we work

The fact that we are starting afresh means that we can mold and build our portfolio as we want, using the underwriting talents within Convex US. Our team has decades of property underwriting experience.

Risk selection and underwriting to a high standard will always remain a priority. We realize we are not going to be the answer to every facultative need in the marketplace, however, we are always happy to provide valuable insight on an exposure to help our customers. When we apply our underwriting experience, along with the financial strength of Convex Group, we can hopefully find the best solution for our clients and brokers.
