WTW has announced the appointment of Joe Noss as senior director for the Finance Sector in the company’s Climate and Resilience Hub (CRH). In his new role, Noss (pictured above) will lead engagement with financial institutions, markets and regulators worldwide to support the transition to a net-zero financial system. He is based in London.

Noss has more than 15 years of experience in the financial sector. He joins WTW from the G20 Financial Stability Board (FSB), where he led on climate financial regulation for the banking, investment and insurance sectors. Noss played a key role in coordinating the FSB Climate Roadmap, which was published last year and will help shape global climate policy over the next five years. Prior to FSB, Noss spent over a decade at the Bank of England. He has also been involved in a variety of international policy work.

“COP26 propelled the financial revolution to integrate climate risks and opportunities into valuations and align markets towards a net-zero and resilient transition,” said Rowan Douglas, head of the Climate Resilience Hub at WTW. “We are delighted Joe selected WTW as the best platform to serve the financial sector. No one is better qualified to help our clients and wider stakeholders forge their optimum pathway in the climate decade ahead.”

“I am delighted to have joined WTW at this exciting time in the development of its market-leading solutions to achieve climate resilience,” Noss said. “I look forward to working with the hugely experienced and talented climate team and the wider WTW business, and to supporting financial institutions to strengthen further their capabilities as they navigate the climate risks – and opportunities – and develop a long-term strategic response to them.”
