About Hetul Patel
I often get asked “what does an Actuary do?”. Well, my job is to make the companies I work for great. Yes, as a qualified actuary I have the technical skills for pricing, reserving and risk management. But after nearly 20 years of working in the insurance industry, I’m able to offer much more than that.
I’m an experienced global leader with a track record in generating profitable growth, turning around companies and, managing international teams. I have deep experience in data and analytics, am commercially astute and communicate well to a range of audiences.
Throughout my career, I have worked with all core functions giving advice that was both insightful and added value. I have successfully shaped and executed corporate strategy, implemented transformation projects, negotiated M&A deals, and built a strong professional network.
I think technology and people will be the key to the future of insurance. That’s why I’m a big advocate of Insurtech and developing talent. I mentor start-ups on the Plug and Play ecosystem and aspiring IFoA actuaries, as well as being a board advisor to Kovrr.
When I’m not making companies great, I like to hack around a golf course, try to make money investing in various assets, and keep my twin boys as entertained as possible.
