Chief executive David Walsh, 49, founded this specialist underwriting firm in 2000 using funding from his former employer, Hyperion Insurance. CFC provides insurance to more than 50,000 businesses in 60 countries. The popularity of cyber-insurance in America helped the firm’s international sales to hit £34.3m last year. Private equity firm Vitruvian Partners backed a management buyout in 2017, valuing CFC at a reported £230m.
