WTW has appointed David Singh as Head of Climate Analytics and Exposure Management for its Insurance Consulting and Technology business, where he will be based in London.
Singh served as the Group Head of Exposure & Portfolio Management at global insurer MS Amlin, where he was responsible for the group’s risk aggregation and reporting activities across all legal entities.
Prior to MS Amlin, Singh worked for Lloyd’s of London with senior responsibilities that included managing the Society’s catastrophe risk appetite, managing multiple regulatory filings to and from the market, and ensuring Managing Agents exceed Lloyd’s expectations and exposure management standards.
During his time at Lloyd’s, he devised and implemented a number of catastrophe model validation concepts and Solvency II returns that are still used in the market today.
Adhiraj Maitra, Global Head of ESG and Climate Change, Insurance Consulting and Technology at WTW, said: “David brings an exceptional level of expertise and experience in exposure management to this new role.
“Insurers are under increasing pressure to understand and tackle the growing uncertainty around climate change-related risks as they look to evolve the role of exposure management in the business.
“Working with colleagues across the ICT and Climate and Resilience Hub teams, as well as the wider WTW business, David will be an invaluable asset in leading the development of innovative and practical propositions to help insurers respond and adapt quickly to the climate challenge.”
Singh said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at WTW, which has been at the forefront of innovation around understanding and managing climate risk.
“By harnessing WTW’s unique skill set and cutting-edge climate analytics capabilities, we are well placed to help insurers understand and manage their exposure to climate change, transforming their business models to drive innovation in underwriting and product design, delivering significant value and reduced corporate risk.”
