Ali joins leadership team at MIT conference
Hamilton Re's Hanni Ali is representing the company this week at the flagship meeting of SOLVE, a global initiative that facilitates technology-based solutions to pressing issues facing the world's communities.
The annual event, held at SOLVE's home base at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA, attracts more than 500 prominent cross-sector leaders as well as members of the MIT community. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was the 2018 featured speaker.
Mr Ali took on his current role as Hamilton Re senior vice-president risk & analytics, last week.
He will be attending the event as a member of the healthy cities leadership group, one of four focus areas in SOLVE's 2019 Global Challenge. Submissions are currently being invited for solutions to designing and living in environments that promote physical and mental health. Entries are also invited in the three other Global Challenge areas of focus: community-driven innovation, early childhood development and circular economy.
Mr Ali also represented Hamilton at last year's SOLVE when he was a member of the coastal communities leadership group.
“The work that SOLVE does is meaningful from a number of perspectives,” Mr Ali said. “Seeking purposeful solutions to global issues that have a direct impact on improving the lives of underprivileged individuals is important to me and should be important to all of us. In that regard, I'm proud to support SOLVE's work in any way I can.
“I'm also proud that Hamilton was the first insurance company to become a member of SOLVE. Our focus on technology aligns well with SOLVE's mission. Our membership is tangible evidence of our belief that data science and analytics can fundamentally transform underwriting and enhance the manner in which we provide risk protection to the under served.”
