Miller pools talent to create global parametric team


By Kenneth Araullo

Global re/insurance broker Miller has announced its foray into the parametric insurance arena with the creation of a new global division.

Led by Alice Glenister, the parametric insurance team set to focus on a vast array of sectors and industries.

The team aims to extend the range of insurance triggers beyond nat cat events, developing custom-tailored solutions that address client needs and risk exposures, including programs like reduction in yield, cyber downtime, and wind deficiency policies.

Glenister, who recently transitioned from her role as director of insurance at Mastercard, will head up the London-based team. Her background includes parametric underwriting experience from her tenure at Generali.

Glenister will be supported by Charlie Liddle, joining from OneGlobal, and Rowan Minhas, who moves from another position within Miller. She shared her excitement about leading this new global team, emphasizing the unique benefits of parametric insurance, such as expedited claims processing and increased transparency.

“Working across a range of sectors, we will be able to provide coverage for those risks that were once considered too complex or too difficult to insure, allowing Miller clients access to enhanced risk management capabilities. By harnessing the power of parametric solutions, Miller are poised to redefine the way their clients protect their assets and mitigate risks in an ever-changing world,” Glenister said.

Martin Henderson, head of energy & construction at Miller, expressed enthusiasm about Glenister’s leadership and the formation of the team.

“The formation of this specialized team underscores Miller’s ongoing commitment to innovation and client-centricity, allowing us to develop and implement cutting-edge parametric solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs of clients across various industries and geographic regions,” Henderson said.

Besides parametrics, the re/insurance broker has also bolstered its energy proposition with the appointment of Hayley Kennedy as client advocate for the upstream and onshore energy divisions.
