Bond to lead Marsh’s climate and sustainability innovation efforts

2nd December 2021 - Author: Charlie Wood

Re/insurance broker Marsh has named Ryan Bond to lead its climate and sustainability insurance innovation efforts, a role effective in the new year.

Based in London, Bond will report to Amy Barnes, Head of Climate and Sustainability Strategy.

Having joined the business in 2007, he will now be responsible for leading the global development of insurance solutions that support Marsh’s clients.

Most recently Bond served at Marsh’s international placement business as Chief Executive for UK and Ireland.

Before his time with the broker he was a Division Director at Willis Towers Watson for six years and is a board member of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association.

Commenting on the appointment, Barnes said, “Insurance has a key role to play in accelerating climate-related action, smoothing the transition, and supporting the societal change required to realise a more sustainable future.

“Ryan’s extensive experience working with international insurance markets, together with his deep understanding of the challenges our clients face, will be invaluable in the development of new solutions that support organisations in achieving their climate and sustainability-related goals.”

Bond added, “There is a clear opportunity for greater innovation in risk transfer, underwriting, and risk management to support global climate ambitions, and for insurance to be a more immediate catalyst for change.

“I look forward to working with our clients, colleagues, and the wider insurance community to build resilience amid increasing climate volatility and develop nature-positive insurance solutions.”
