LOGiQ3, a global consulting and outsourcing provider to the life insurance and reinsurance market, has appointed Andrew Wibberley, director of Alea Risk, to distribute its digital underwriter training programme in the UK and Ireland. 

LOGiQ3 said its decision to leverage the extensive underwriting background and network of Alea Risk, which is a specialist change and customer proposition consultancy provider, will not only increase the programme’s reach, but it is also a part of their long term UK and Irish expansion plan.

Wibberley has substantial knowledge and experience, including five years at Swiss Re as head of underwriting for the UK & Ireland.

Previously, he has held senior industry roles at Ageas, XL Catlin and Munich Re. Wibberley will be working closely with the newly established LOGiQ3 team based in the UK headed up by LOGiQ3 group, co-founder and co-CEO, Simon Bell, and head of EMEA strategy and business development, Andy Hazell.

Commenting on the new partnership, Wibberley said training is absolutely fundamental to provide underwriters with the necessary skills to assess the complex risks of life and health insurance.

“By innovatively using technology to develop both new and existing underwriters, insurers can improve both their risk management and their customer offering,” said Wibberley.

Bell said: We are focussed on growing quickly into a leading training and service provider to the UK life industry, and Andrew’s experience will help us achieve that. He is already familiar with our service offering and people through his previous role at Swiss Re. I have no doubt that Alea will be a great business partner.”
