Any ranking of the industry’s most influential people is going to be subjective, so we do not pretend ours is definitive. It is meant to be the beginning of a conversation, not the final word.
Our ranking is borne out of a collective editorial discussion within the Lloyd’s List newsroom and it is our intention to produce a useful snapshot of the forces at play within our industry and some forward-looking nods to the trends into which each profile delves.
It is not comprehensive; it is unlikely to be fair; but it is, we hope, a compelling annual examination of our industry and the personalities that drive it forward.
Defensive pragmatism and reactive prudence is driving our annual ranking of the industry’s most influential figures, but next year’s list may look very different as a result.
