Three Questions with Terry McGrath

What do you like most about your job?  

I like interacting with people about all aspects of insurance, it is a people business after all!

If you had a yacht, what would you name it? 
The Intrepid! New challenges inspire me.

If you could compete in any Olympic sport, which would it be? 
I will take a little bit of liberty (as it’s not an Olympic sport…), Cricket. It is a game of strategy and a strong team is more important than individual stars.
