Peter Coates – Director

Peter spent 15 years working at Wellington Underwriting in the Lloyd's market, with responsibilities for UW, Claims and internal management support and review, before moving to Australia where he has held senior management roles with reinsurance and insurance companies, as well as leading CGEY's Insurance practice for ANZ, before taking over the Axiom AP business in 2005, which he then purchased from the Charles Taylor Group in 2010.

For the past 11 years, he has developed a small team that specialises in UW Agency and TPA audits and related reviews in Australia, NZ, Hong Kong, Canada and SE Asia and the Pacific Rim for a large number of Lloyd's and Company insurers, and International Reinsurers – being involved in around 50 audits each year, covering more than 120 Binders / TPA portfolios in all.

Peter has also been involved in a number of Catastrophe Analysis claim reviews for several Reinsurers in relation to the NZ Earthquakes in 2010/11 and more recently the Kaikoura Earthquake of 2016.

Paul Mackay – Associate

Paul spent over 20 years as a reinsurance broker and client manager at Aon in Australia & New Zealand before setting up an independent consultancy business offering technical expertise and analytical consulting support to general insurers and reinsurers in Australia.

He acts as a sub-contractor to Axiom AP, based in Sydney, and over the past 4 years has carried out between 15 and 25 audits of Agencies and TPAs each year, either alone, or alongside Peter and Jo on the larger businesses and reviews.

Joanne Cox – Associate

Jo joined the team in early 2017 after a short career-break, with a long career in the Australian corporate insurance market as a broker with Millers and JLT, specialising in Construction Insurance, including a spell in Thailand as a senior account manager. She has also more recently undertaken a number of part-time roles with small brokers and agents in the Australian market.

She acts as a sub-contractor to Axiom AP, based in Melbourne, and will also be involved in 15–20 audits per year of both Coverholders and TPAs, working alone or with Paul or Peter on larger engagements.
