Jon Davies
Vice president

Jon was the driving force behind Travelers’ strong entry into the UK legal professional indemnity market back in 2000, when the Solicitors Indemnity Fund was closed down. The company has not looked back since.

He has overall responsibility for the profitability, strategic direction and management of the ‘financial lines’ businesses at Travelers Europe (ie all insurance other than property and personal insurance).

Jon has been responsible for managing many of Travelers' most challenging and complex risks and is part of the leadership teams for both Travelers Insurance Company and Travelers Syndicate Management (Syndicate 5000) at Lloyd’s. His full job title is Vice President, Bond & Specialty Insurance for the Travelers European operation.

Jon is always looking for ways to deliver additional value to Travelers customers. He believes that this website has the potential to become a really useful resource for smaller firms in particular.
