London, UK (PRWEB UK) 25 April 2013
Investance, the provider of a portfolio of specialist management consulting, technology and outsourcing services to the Financial Services Industry today announced the expansion of its services to the UK Insurance sector.
The £200bn UK Insurance sector is facing unprecedented challenges; a changing regulatory environment (in particular Solvency II), shifting consumer demand, increasing global competition and a series of well publicised mis-selling scandals eroding consumer confidence have all had an impact on the Insurance sector, impacting premium incomes and margins. In response, Insurers are being forced to rethink their operating models to deliver efficiencies and costs savings whilst ensuring robust regulatory compliance.
For over 12 years, Investance has been supporting major financial institutions to transform their operations and respond to market challenges. The launch of Investance UK’s Insurance practice is a natural extension of its Financial Services consulting activities in the UK and meets an increasing demand from their clients to provide services to this sector.
Stuart Leask, Head of UK Insurance, commented: “Investance is well positioned to expand our already well-established consulting business into the UK Insurance industry sector. In an environment where operational efficiency is key, Investance’s pragmatic approach offers a strong proposition to insurers looking to adapt to an ever changing market place.”
Cedric Boisne, Managing Director, Investance UK said: “The UK Insurance industry is the third largest in the world, its providers offer world-class Insurance products and services to businesses and consumers in the UK and overseas. Investance’s track record working for leading financial institutions and insurance companies in the US and Europe means we can bring both practical experience and industry knowledge to the new Insurance practice in London.”
