Peter Elliott

How would you describe yourself?

Purpose driven with a passion for people and supporting teams to be successful. I am very persistent and competitive but balance this with being open minded and inclusive. I really enjoy team sports whether watching or participating, participation being quite limited now! I also enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family.


What interests you about your role and Eliot Partnership?

Supporting the continued growth of the company with a specific emphasis on the global life and health sector is very exciting. I am passionate about the sector and look forward to sharing my experiences and relationships gained from 40 years working across reinsurance and insurance both in the UK and internationally. The global approach and focus on ‘shared excellence’ at Eliot Partnership really resonates with me as does the strong desire to form long term client relationships.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A professional footballer.

What is your biggest asset?

My long standing network of colleagues and friends.
