I am a Manager in EY’s Life Actuarial team, and have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects across insurance, asset management and banking since joining the firm in 2014.
My particular passion is helping financial services firms and the actuarial profession to better understand climate risk, transition to a low carbon economy, and contribute to positive societal change. I lead our Sustainable Finance Actuarial team and have spent the majority of the last 2 years helping firms to design their climate risk and ESG strategies, comply with emerging regulatory expectations, and support with achieving net-zero. I am an active member of the IFOA Biodiversity and Natural Capital Working Party, and I’m excited to see what the profession can achieve in this emerging area.
In addition to my work in Sustainable Finance, career highlights to date include supporting high-profile transactions and restructuring in the UK insurance market, helping firms to design and deploy assets into Solvency II friendly investments (including infrastructure debt, commercial real estate debt and equity release mortgages in particular), and supporting firms with their contingency and resilience planning.
Outside of work, you’ll most likely find me cycling, running, or gardening. I’m particularly excited to resume my ambition to cycle my tandem in every county in the UK later in 2021!
