A life in insurance: interview with AM Re’s Simon Barder

Simon Barder, CUO, AM Re

AM Re’s Simon Barder has been in this industry for nearly 50 years, working in several countries. He sat down to tell Intelligent Insurer about what he has seen and learned in that time.

It was early in the morning for Simon Barder, chief underwriting officer at AM Re, when he came to the Re/insurance Lounge, the on-demand platform for interviews and panel discussions with industry leaders, to speak with Intelligent Insurer.

Barder is now based in Dallas, Texas, after stints living and working in London, Toronto, Charlotte, and New York. AM Re is itself something of a family business, started by Barder and his wife Shevawn, and now including their son George and daughters Mandy and Olivia in its staff.

The family link is not a new facet to Barder’s story. He comes from a long line of people in the insurance business.
