With a background in finance and life insurance, and his experience in Client Services, Steve brings a unique perspective to underwriting. Steve says, “I feel like the Underwriting function is a combination of doctor, lawyer and detective. My time spent in Client Services honed my understanding of life insurance which has helped me with the underwriting process.”

Steve studied finance at The W.A.
