ABI tight-lipped on Kelly departure after just six months

The Association of British Insurers' director general Kerrie Kelly is understood to be stepping down after just six months in the role.

Reports suggest that the former executive director and chief executive of the Insurance Council of Australia is leaving her role in the UK.

However a spokesman for the ABI refused to comment on Kelly's position.

She replaced Stephen Hadrill, who moved to the Financial Reporting Council.
