I'm Cat and I am a partner in LCP's Insurance Consulting practice. I have over a decade of consulting experience and help my clients understand and manage their insurance risks better. I work with a wide range of insurers, including large personal lines insurers, commercial insurers and Lloyd's syndicates.
I am a Solvency II expert and can help you and your firm navigate the wide-ranging and onerous regulatory requirements. I have performed numerous independent reviews of internal model validation, risk and governance frameworks, standard formula calculations and technical provisions. I have also helped the risk function of a large global insurer prepare for restructuring and redomiciling due to Brexit.
Clients tell me that they appreciate my hands-on approach to getting things done, and my ability to explain complex issues in an easy to understand way.
I have previously been a member of the Solvency II Practical Review working party, am a member of the IFoA’s 400 club and the deputy chair of the IFoA’s GI Life Long Learning Committee. I author of LCP’s annual review on the SFCRs of 100 non-life insurers across the UK and Ireland, and have presented widely on this subject, including at EIOPA’s industry conference in Frankfurt. I also manage our insurance teams and am involved in the recruitment of actuarial staff. I also manage our insurance teams and am involved in the recruitment of actuarial staff. In addition, I am a founding member and co-chair of LCP's LGBT+ network which leads initiatives and provides support to ensure that we provide an accepting environment for LGBT+ individuals to thrive and prosper.
Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family and am an avid theatre and concert-goer.
If you distil everything about LCP down to one thing, it is 'I trust what they are telling us'.
