Now in its third year, our Influential Women in Re/insurance report remains one of our most anticipated pieces of research and extremely popular online. The nature of the report is starting to change, as are the responses given by those we profile.

The risk transfer business remains a male-dominated industry although that is changing quickly. Instead of focusing on the lack of women in the industry, we instead focus on the talent that does exist—and how this pool is growing and maturing by the day.

For clarity on what this list means and what it represents, the 2017 research and profiles complement and add to the base of female talent we have previously identified in the years 2015 and 2016.

Therefore, while in the Class of 2017 we have identified and profiled 85 new women, this should be combined with the hundreds of executives we have profiled previously. What follows here is a selection of the 2017 profiles, with the full list on page 22. While we have previously restricted the list to female executives in re/insurers or brokers, we have loosened our criteria this year and included a selection of service providers and advisers working directly with the risk transfer industry.
