If you want to do niche products and deal with people, wholesale brokerage is pretty intersting. You see difficult to place business.

How different would the actual work be? I have found pricing satellites to be really similar to pricing grocery stores. The main difference is that the field names are different, and the underwriters use different nouns when you're talking to them.

You should price _____ using _____, ____, and ____ - with factors ____, ____, and ____. We have found ____ and ____ to be highly correlated so you shouldn't use ____ and ____ together in your rating algorithm.

Insurance for Satellites would probably need to be structured through multiple Lloyds markets and grocery stores could get a single carrier with enough capacity to write the whole thing.
