Welcome to my staff web page. You can find out more about me from a brief description below, and from the CRIS home page.
I joined the School in October 1975 after completing a joint honours BSc in Mathematics and Economics, and doctoral research on the UK life insurance market which was supported by the Geneva Association and the Legal & General Insurance Group. In 1999 I was appointed to a chair in insurance management sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Insurers - the London-based insurance livery company. Throughout my career at Nottingham I have studied risk and insurance from a wide variety of perspectives, although most of my research relies on quantitative and econometric analysis. I have the great good fortune to work as part of a friendly and talented team of researchers within the Centre for Risk and Insurance Studies (CRIS) and I am a member of the editorial board of the Geneva Papers on Risk and Insurance.
