1. What was the first record/CD/download you can remember buying? Spice by the Spice Girls (from my local Sainsburys) 2. What is your biggest pet hate about the world of financial services? The attitude that young customers aren’t viable and not worth treating in a compassionate way. I was once told by a bank that designing helpful services for us “wasn’t profitable” and that we should design the kind of industry we want to see.

What was the first record/CD you can remember buying? Abba Arrival. That dates me. What is your biggest pet hate about the world of financial services? Inteminable and unreadable boiler-plate copy provided with the aim of informing customers. What is your favourite film, and why? Get Carter.

If you employ people to represent you then at least let them be themselves. What is your favourite film, and why? (Or book, if you prefer) The Great Escape. I wanted to be Steve McQueen. (Still do). What is currently the biggest issue facing reinsurers in the UK market? Commoditisation of reinsurance purchasing.

1. What was the first record you can remember buying? Kylie Minogue – The Locomotion. Please never ask me that again. 2. What is your biggest pet hate about the world of financial services? Most people working in it are kept so far from the coal-face; they seem to have very little idea of what customers actually want. 3. What is your favourite film, and why? (Or book, if you prefer) The Pursuit of Happyness. An inspirational tale of determination in the face of adversity. 4. In no more than five words, what do you want to achieve with Squared…
