FC Espana recently hosted a family weekend in the beautiful mountains of Guadalajara attended by many of the key players in the Madrid insurance market. This is an annual event started nine years ago by our Managing Director in Spain, Javier Espeja. Our directors in the UK were delighted to join him and his guests.

Bev FitzGerald has recently returned from a Covid-delayed trip to Chile and Peru.
He was joined there by members of our business based in Santiago, Chile including our resident director, Juan Ignacio Alvarez; Paulo Correa; and Andres Parra.
During a week-long visit, we met numerous senior people from the insurance markets in both Santiago and Lima. We received an excellent reception. The market was especially interested by our linked businesses in the UK, Spain and Chile which offer first-rate access to the important London and Madrid markets.
It was also clear that there was strong demand for high-quality, personalised adjusting of ‘Energy’ losses, both conventional and renewable. We handle these across all our businesses, with particularly specialist directors based in Spain – Javier Espeja and Angel Carretero.
Similarly, the market was impressed by our handling of CAT and major PD/BI losses – such as a $100million US ‘Riot’ case where are appointed by the London Market.
We are following up with proposals to clients focusing on CAT planning and our international CAT team based in the UK under the leadership of director, Graeme Shurben.

Handling Energy insurance claims – both conventional and renewable – is an important and fast-growing part of our business.
Last month, our Bev FitzGerald and Roger Woodhead attended the annual, and very successful, Onshore Energy Conference in London. This featured first-rate technical presentations while also offering a great opportunity to meet a large number of people working internationally in this area.
At the same time, our director colleagues in Spain, Javier Espeja and Angel Carretero, were appointed on the largest Energy loss in that country for the past twenty years – a $35million US claim.
Javier and Angel have built a strong reputation in this area of claims and travel worldwide dealing with losses, as well as having built a pre-eminent reputation in Spain.
Two of our UK directors recently visited Spain to meet director colleagues and key clients of FitzGerald Consulting Espana. This company continues to grow very strongly – locally and internationally. It has in particular built up an excellent reputation for handling claims in the ‘Renewables’ sector. While we were in Madrid, our colleagues, Javier Espeja and Angel Carretero, were putting the final touches to a trip to Africa to deal with six separate such claims there. The photo shows Javier and Angel, plus Bev FitzGerald and Katy Emerson, together with two clients.
On 7 June, we co-hosted a drinks reception in the City Club in London with other members of Context International, the global adjusting network. We are the sole UK representatives.

On a lovely English summer evening, we finally met our friends and colleagues in the Market in person – many of our clients having been with us since we started the business – and welcomed several new clients too.
Deep in discussion – in person at last!
