Lloyd’s global (re)insurer MS Amlin has appointed Dr Jessica Turner as its new head of risk analytics, effective June 26. Turner will report to director of underwriting performance Martin Burke.
In a press release, Burke said that Turner’s appointment reflects the firm’s objectives of “seeking out new perspectives and expertise.”
“By expanding our talent pool to include those with cutting-edge skills in analytics, modelling, and catastrophe risk, we can provide more innovative insights and solutions for our clients. I am therefore delighted to welcome Jessica to our business,” Burke said.
Turner joins the reinsurer from Guy Carpenter, where she has worked as a managing director and head of international catastrophe advisory for over four years. That role saw her leading a team of natural catastrophe experts in evaluating and analysing climate change physical risk quantification for all major perils within the EMEA and APAC regions.
Before joining Guy Carpenter, she spent over two years at Lloyd’s Banking Group as a senior manager. She also held positions at Willis Re and RMS. She holds a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, and advanced diploma in insurance, and is a Certified Catastrophe Risk Analyst.
Earlier this year, MS Amlin bolstered its underwriting leadership team with the appointment of Grant Baxter as interim CUO and Neil Walker and Sam Geddes as co-deputy CUOs.
