Maurice’s insight and perspective will be very important as we address important issues ranging from flood insurance, to compensation reform.”

We face major challenges, from making insurance less complex for our customers, to demonstrating our value to governments and working with regulators to ensure we are operating effectively.

“There is a real opportunity for the ABI to set the future shape of our industry; I am confident that the GIC will continue to play a leading role in these important debates and take the right decisions for our industry and its customers.”

“On behalf of the GIC, I would like to thank Paul Evans for his considerable personal dedication in his time as the GIC chairman and I wish him every success with his appointment as ABI Chairman.”
