Nishika is an Insurance Risk Manager for QBE, leading the Validation and Challenge team. She was responsible for performing deep dives across any area of the business, to challenge existing processes, investigate problems or evaluate lessons learned in order to help the organisation. She is responsible for the Independent Validation of the Capital Model. Prior to QBE, she spent a number of years at PwC, working both within General Insurance as well as applying her actuarial skills to Banking. Nish feels very lucky to be working with talented actuaries (and non-actuaries!) and enjoys the variety in her role.
Outside of work, Nish is proud of climbing Mont Blanc and Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as completing a marathon, 3 triathlons and cycling from London to Paris. Nish thinks she holds the record for how much cheese she can get through in a day and enjoys cooking and going for long walks around Kent. Having recently married, she was mocked by her family for creating a detailed wedding planning spreadsheet and is guilty of having a spreadsheet for almost every country she travels to and one for her husband’s duties!
