Convex Group Limited (“Convex”), the international specialty insurer and reinsurer, today announces the promotion of Brian Bissett to group chief finance officer (CFO) with immediate effect. Based in London, Bissett will report to Paul Brand, CEO of Convex Group Limited.
As part of a planned transition of roles Benji Meuli will be stepping aside to become Chief Investment Officer (CIO). He will remain on the Board, and will continue to represent the investment function. In his new role, Bissett will be responsible for overseeing the Convex finance function, while retaining responsibility for the data and the actuarial teams.
Bissett joined Convex at its inception in 2019 as Group Chief Actuary. He has more than 30 years of experience in the data and actuarial sector within the re/insurance industry and has held numerous senior positions at Catlin, XL Catlin and Zurich. He is also a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries.
Paul Brand said: “Brian has been instrumental in not only building and leading Convex’s successful actuarial and claims functions but in orchestrating Convex’s data agenda. His exceptional actuarial and leadership capabilities make his promotion to CFO a natural and well-deserved step. With his financial acumen and sterling reputation, Brian exemplifies the high standards that Convex practices and I am confident he will continue to make a positive and lasting impact on Convex’s future successes.
“I would like to thank Benji for his outstanding work and his contribution to Convex’s growth. I am delighted that we will still benefit from his extensive expertise in his new role of CIO.”
