The N&R Team Challenge is back for another season. We have 12 teams competing, with managers working as far and wide as Mexico City and Tokyo but as managers move jobs, that could change of course.
For those new to the N&R FL, this is a list of previous winners:
2010/11 QBE - Wright, Richards
2009/10 Bluefin - Ready, Saveall
2008/09 Willis - Baillie, Sheron, Kennett
2007/08 BMS - Wenman, Reddy
2006/07 Layton Blackham - Read, Saveall, Thomas
2005/06 AIG - Waterman, France, Dewberry, Barwick, Higgs, Ryan.
2004/05 Marsh - Simmons, Doyle
2003/04 Marsh - Simmons, Doyle
2002/03 Allianz - Jenkins, Day
2001/02 Avon - Godfrey, Rose
2000/01 HSBC - Waters, Murrell, Ready
There needs to be a minimum of 2 team members, with no max. Chartis team has 11 and Aon Benfield's 9 for example.
The early season leaders after 8 weeks of scores are RSA. They lead with 287 average points, just a couple ahead of Gravity. In 3rd is the Chartis team and HDI Gerling lie 4th.
Zurich are 5th, and then it is pretty tight with only a few points separating Bluefin in 6th, Aon Benfield in 7th, current champs QBE 8th, Tokio 9th and Aon's international mix (managers in Chicago, Bermuda, New York and Australia) 10th.
Second bottom is Allianz with JRP's Lloyds Syndicate at the bottom of the pile. Early days yet. The N&R Team Challenge Trophy will be issued with the week 8 scores email.
