So, I gave my notice after 5 years combined at my current firm (I left for 9 months to an insurer and was invited back in a vastly expanded role). I’ll miss the prestige of this role and the people here, but it is time for a change.
The firm I work for currently is over 100 years old. We’ve historically had some insane claims. The Titanic, Hindenburg and the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers were all files handled by my company to name a few.
As a treat, here is the Lloyds of London slip showing the underwriters & their amounts for the Titanic. Most people don’t understand, but Lloyds is not an insurance company, it is a market that facilitates private investors to insure risks as an investment.
For a premium of £7,500 per ship, the ship was insured for 12 months with a limit of £1million. 12 insurers and over 50 investing syndicates participated in the risk as you can see below. Our letterhead (at the time) is at the top. Needless to say, it was not a great investment.
While the new job is a step down in prestige, it is a step up in experience, work/life balance and pay. I look forward to it.
I am pretty sold on a Wrangler. I looked at sedans, hatches and even wagons before deciding what I needed was as close to the opposite of a Fiesta ST as I could get. Bad handling, even worse build quality than a Mexican built subcompact
It won’t be for a little while or a few months, but I likely will purchase a Wrangler Sport S (either lightly used or new) with a 6 speed manual and soft top.
Any Jeep that I buy will need a new shift & transfer case knobs right away, an Oppo sticker and I think I will have a Sergio Marchionne sticker commissioned. I owe him one. I have a few mods planned, nothing crazy.
