Geo-political, climate, cyber and reputational risks all pose real challenges, but also represent an opportunity for the London Market, which has always been a home for innovation, to demonstrate the critical role it can play in developing innovative solutions to solve the big issues impacting business and society.

“It’s what makes London the world leading global insurance market and I am excited to play a role in championing all those who work within it as a member of the London Market Group board.”
