EY has appointed James Anderson as its new UK consulting partner amid rising market demand and the firm’s investment in growth.
Anderson will lead EY’s pricing consultancy practice, which offers pricing strategy and advises on innovations in analytics and technology to non-life insurance firms.
He joins from Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty (AGCS), a multinational global corporate insurance carrier, where he was the deputy global chief pricing actuary. Prior, he held leadership roles in CUO Portfolio Management and CFO Actuarial.
Overall, Anderson has over 20 years’ experience, with commercial and reinsurance pricing expertise, and has delivered a number of large-scale global pricing transformations. In addition to pricing, he has experience across analytics, portfolio management and underwriting steering.
Paul Sparkes, UK Financial Services Consulting leader at EY, said: “I am delighted to welcome James to EY to lead a high performing pricing consultancy team, which is an area we are expanding in, in response to rising demand from companies for technology and data led innovations to help manage their costs.
“James has a wealth of experience which will be crucial to our financial services clients as they navigate their digital transformation journeys in the current macroeconomic environment.”
Anderson added: “In the current environment of high inflation and shifting market conditions, having an effective pricing strategy is critical for the ability of insurers to manage the cycle and drive top- and bottom-line growth.
“I am delighted to join EY at this time of high demand in the market. EY has an excellent team in place and I look forward to working with them to deliver pricing transformation for our clients.”
