Clayton Gardner

After a number of years in the role of Chief Technical Underwriter Clayton Gardner has agreed to step back into the Chief Underwriter role for Partners Life.

"I am personally delighted that Clayton will once again be the public face of underwriting at Partners Life, and I am sure the many advisers who have had the pleasure of dealing with Clayton over the years will be equally delighted," managing director Naomi Ballantyne says.

"As one of Partners Life’s founding employees, Clayton has demonstrated a loyalty and commitment to the company which is second to none, and his agreement to step back into the Chief Underwriter role is further evidence of this commitment.

"Of course, a lot has changed over the nine years since Partners Life began. Clayton is very confident that the fantastic senior underwriting team that we have developed over those years, alongside our revolutionary MUM software, will facilitate his plans to make Partners Life the modern template for how risk underwriting should/can be delivered.

Gardner is excited about the opportunity to reconnect with Partners' advisers in the way that the Chief Underwriter role will afford him and he is very much looking forward to touching base with you all over the months ahead, she said.
