BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Job change over the next 10 years

I am proud to work in the insurance industry at such an exciting time. Digital disruption is coming from various directions, including changes in consumer behavior, increased readiness to purchase insurance online, the explosive growth in data, abundance of insurtech startups and the availability of more sophisticated analytical tools. The need for a workforce skilled in technology and data, along with an ability to drive change will continue to increase. This will allow brokers such as Marsh to better understand clients and serve as true risk advisers.

Best-kept secret about insurance

Insurance is going through an exciting time, making this a great industry to own and in which to drive change. I would also highlight the vast amount and variety of data that will continue to become available, with endless possibilities to develop unique insights and new products.

Something people don’t know about you

One of my more memorable (and risky) experiences as a teenager was skydiving in Cuba.

Favorite meal

Gratin dauphinoise, ratatouille, madeleine and tarte tatin made by my French family-in-law. Fresh white asparagus.
