The aviation (re)insurance market has experienced significant hardening since late 2019, putting increased emphasis on working with only the most specialised and knowledgeable underwriters. As members of the International Union of Aviation Insurers, we have sought out these individuals for our proposition, to provide facultative reinsurance to clients domiciled across the globe (except in US/Canada and sanctioned countries). The team can work with brokers/cedants in a lead or follow capacity.
Our portfolio managers have a wealth of experience in their niche line of business and combine this with a dedication to helping our broker partners win and retain more business.
Portfolio Manager - Aviation
Wayne Murphy is the portfolio manager for aviation at Rokstone. Wayne is responsible for creating a diverse aviation portfolio, covering airlines, general aviation and airport liability.

Wayne has successfully established and developed businesses in Europe, North America, Australia, the Middle East and the Far East, producing leading results through attention to detail and commitment to his projects.

“The entrepreneurial DNA of Rokstone combined with their mission of creating long term value for their clients, capacity providers and shareholders is what sets them apart from most other MGAs and what inspired me to join them.”
