Brindle to head Fidelis sustainability drive

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Bermudian-based Fidelis Insurance has appointed Olivia Brindle as its new head of sustainability.

Ms Brindle, who is based in London, joins Fidelis from Swiss Re, where she was an investor relations senior manager.

At Swiss Re, Fidelis said, she interacted with a wide range of stakeholders — both internal and external — on topics of financial and strategic importance. This increasingly included involvement in sustainability, given the growing importance of these issues for investors.

Charles Mathias, group director of underwriting, said: “At Fidelis we believe that ESG (environmental, social and governance) has to pervade every area of our business including our underwriting portfolio, as well as our operations and investments.

“We are setting ambitious goals in every area of E, S and G and we aim to be a leader in all three. As such we wanted to find a head of ESG who understands how the industry works and what stakeholders from policyholders to shareholders are looking for from a partner.

“Having worked as an insurance analyst at banks, and partnered with the ESG team at Swiss Re, we think Olivia will bring analytical skills, industry knowledge and a real passion to the role.”

Ms Brindle said: “I am truly excited to be joining Fidelis; a nimble and dynamic company that wants to make a difference on both environmental and social issues.

“The goal is to bring honesty, rigour and accountability to the treatment of sustainability topics.

“These discussions raise many fundamental questions and we — all insurers, all corporates — must continually refine our approach while making a tangible impact through how we do business every day.”
