Young Professionals

Welcome to the Young Members' Committee of the IIL. Our committee is made up of representatives under the age of 35 from different segments of the London market, including insurers, reinsurers, brokers, Lloyd's, the LMA and the legal profession. We're here to promote learning and networking opportunities and our aim is to assist young members with their career development, through providing innovative events on a variety of subjects.

We've organised many educational events, including a 'Meet the A-Team' session with senior market professionals, an event on cognitive bias in underwriting and an M&A focused ‘Does Size Matter?’ seminar. We also run a ‘So you want to be a CEO?’ series which always proves to be extremely popular! We've got some great ideas up our sleeve for the future so stay tuned and check here regularly for updates. You can also follow the IIL on Twitter and Instagram or join the Young Members' Committee group on LinkedIn.

Of course, the YMC would not be what it is today without a good dose of fun! We are renowned within the Market for our annual Winter Ball, which attracted over 930 guests in 2019.

All our events are created by young members, for young members, so we welcome your feedback and suggestions. We're always on the lookout for new members to join our committee, so if you're interested in joining us or would like to find out more about what we do, please get in touch.
