• Our central ethos is focused sharply on quality underwriting built on discipline, transparency and risk management over the long-term. We continue to build a team of underwriters with multiclass skills who collaborate to deliver a target overall portfolio, with a collaborative approach working across the various classes of reinsurance rather than teams operating in ‘silos’ of business.

    Conduit Re’s team is comprised of experienced individuals from both reinsurance and insurance backgrounds with the expertise and experience to access and manage risk through the market cycles.

  • Our leadership team has highly regarded industry credentials, with hundreds of years’ experience in industry leading organisations in all aspects of insurance across distribution, underwriting and technology (including several successful start-up vehicles).

  • We invest in and leverage technology to support our underwriting teams – we focus particularly on data driven pricing, analytics and exposure management and aim to maximise our use of technology to ensure the team is positioned to make the best real time capacity allocation and underwriting decisions in a highly efficient operating environment.

Trevor Carvey


Trevor has a track record of profitable build outs in the reinsurance industry. In 2002 he was recruited as a founding underwriter and leader at Arch Re Bermuda before which he led the consolidation and subsequent profitable turnaround of the GE Frankona Marine & Energy Global portfolio.

In 2007 Trevor joined Harbor Point Re in the UK to lead the build out of the reinsurance operation over a 5-year period. Subsequently he held the role of CUO Europe in the Alterra Re business which resulted from the merger of Max Re with Harbor Point in 2012.  Trevor was part of the team responsible for the successful integration of the Alterra Global Re unit into Markel delivering an established and profitable business to the enlarged group.

Trevor was approached by Hamilton in 2015, to assist in building out a new treaty strategy in the UK and subsequently took on the role for leading the Lloyd’s approval of the syndicate business plan as active underwriter for the three years from 2016 to 2018.

Trevor is the CEO of Conduit and initially CUO of Conduit Re.
