Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has appointed insurance technology (InsurTech) expert, Nigel Walsh, as a partner in its insurance practice.
As the former UK head of insurance at Capgemini, Nigel has advised UK and European insurance companies on major systems replacements and technology transformation projects. By drawing on his relationships with technology partners, he has helped to improve the customer and broker experience. Nigel is one of the leading members of the InsurTech global movement.
Scott Wheatley, head of insurance consulting, said: “Nigel brings fantastic experience to Deloitte’s insurance team, having been deeply involved in the InsurTech global movement. As a mentor for many startups, including at the StartupBootcamp InsurTech programme, he supports many new companies on how to access and solve business problems across the UK and global insurance markets. By having Nigel on board, we’ll further enhance our InsurTech offering and help companies better use digital applications and integrate current and new core insurance platforms.”
Nigel Walsh said: “Given the scale and volume of investments over the last 12 months alone, the InsurTech movement is at a pivotal place right now as a recognised disruptor to the traditional insurance markets. We’re seeing so many exciting developments for the industry, ranging from new distribution and mobile platforms to cyber protection, insuring connected homes to driverless cars – all enabled through a myriad of new technologies including AI, bots and blockchain. It’s never been a more dynamic time for the world of InsurTech and I look forward to being a part of Deloitte’s team.”
