Investment consulting firm JANA has promoted Greg Wilkinson to head of insurance, to lead the expanded insurance advisory services across the sector.
Wilkinson joined JANA in 2014 and was currently a senior consultant and a member of the global equities research team.
He had over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry, which included 16 years as a consulting actuary in the UK and Australia, prior to joining JANA.
The expansion of the firm’s insurance focus was in response to the increased needs of the sector which was facing lower premium revenue and increased potential claim experience – challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jim Lamborn, JANA chief executive, said demand for its services had been growing across the insurance sector and the new role would provide specialised support for clients.
“Greg’s appointment will enhance our capability to provide support and solutions for our insurance clients,” Lamborn said.
“It will enable our clients to benefit from the depth of JANA’s expertise and deliver stronger investment results.”
