Shore Capital’s Eamonn Flanagan named Insurance Analyst of the Year

Shore Capital, the independent investment group specialising in equity capital markets, principal finance and alternative asset management, is delighted to announce that Eamonn Flanagan has named Insurance Analyst of the Year at the 2014 Lloyd’s London Market Awards.

The Reactions London Market Awards are unique in their approach in that winners are nominated by their peers, before a final decision is made by a smaller judging panel. This year’s judging panel included Neil Maidment, Chief Underwriting Officer, Beazley; Paul Lawrence, Chief Underwriting Officer, Hiscox, London Market; and Richard Dudley, Head of UK & Ireland and Benelux, Aon Benfield.

Commenting on the awards, Dr. Clive Black, Head of Research at Shore Capital, said: “This is a great accolade for Eamonn which demonstrates the respect and regard in which he is held by those companies he covers and his clients. Eamonn exemplifies the fundamentals-based approach we take to our research – appraising financial performance, management teams and their strategies, the quality of the earnings generated by companies and their cash flows.”

Simon Fine, Chief Executive of Shore Capital Markets, said: “Eamonn is one of our most senior analysts who embodies our values of integrity, drive, competence and trust. Our research capability, led by Dr. Clive Black, is one of the most respected teams working in the UK’s equities markets and I am delighted that Eamonn has been recognised for his continued excellence.”

Eamonn is one of the UK’s top stockbroking analysts in the insurance and specialty finance sectors. After a degree in mathematics, he qualified as an actuary with Royal Insurance where he worked for nine years. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries and a Fellow of the Institute of Directors.
