Steve Wardlaw

SHORTLISTED NOMINEE: 

ENTREPRENEUR OF EXCELLENCE –


Steve founded Emerald Life, the first insurance provider to support in the UK to offer equality of service and products to underserved groups, starting with LGBT but expanding then to include women and non-traditional families. Steve saw how the financial services industry was failing to keep pace with societal and legislative progress on equality. He created Emerald Life to revolutionise the insurance industry by offering an unparalleled, inclusive service. Emerald Life is a challenger brand with a strong social purpose – offering coverage to people and families that traditional insurance companies have failed. Through Emerald Life, Steve ensures, for example, that individuals living with HIV have full coverage at no additional cost; that all children including surrogate children are insured; and that individuals are covered for any legal expenses to bring a case for a breach of the UK Equalities Act.
