My Trust Re Journey

Eray Karatepe, Underwriter – Engineering, Bahrain

I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Trust Re family for over 7 years now.

During my first 18 months with Trust Re as part of their fast track trainee programme, I had the opportunity to work in a number of diverse business areas including a number of Facultative departments such as energy, marine, property and engineering.

Upon my successful graduation of the Fast Track programme in 2011, I was lucky enough to be invited to join the Engineering Department on a permanent basis as an Assistant Underwriter.

Over the last 6 years as an official member of Trust Re, I have had exposure to a number of territories which have provided me with the opportunity to grow within the organization.

First, I was promoted to Deputy Underwriter in 2014 and am now Underwriter for our Engineering portfolio, covering the Middle East Region including Turkey. In my role, I am fortunate not only to work with extremely talented individuals internally, but also able to build long term relationships with many clients and brokers externally.

If you work hard and are passionate about what you do, Trust Re can provide ample opportunities for career growth as they grow within the Reinsurance market internationally.

Being a part of Trust Re family with individuals from over 40 different nationalities has not only provided me with an opportunity for career progression but has also helped me to see life from many different angles and develop myself personally
