Marsh has appointed Ryan Bond as its new head of Climate and Sustainability Insurance Innovation, effective 1 January 2022. 

Based in London, Bond will report to Amy Barnes, head of Climate and Sustainability Strategy, Marsh.

In his new role, he will be responsible for leading the global development of insurance solutions that support Marsh’s clients through the climate transition and help them achieve their commitments around sustainability and climate change. 

He will also work alongside Barnes to help support market innovation to address these complex issues.

Bond first joined the business in 2007 and was most recently CEO, UK and Ireland, of Bowring Marsh, Marsh’s international placement business. 

Before joining the group, he was a division director at Willis Towers Watson for six years. He is also a board member of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) and serves on BIBA’s International & Wholesale Advisory Board.

Commenting on Bond’s appointment, Barnes said: “Insurance has a key role to play in accelerating climate-related action, smoothing the transition, and supporting the societal change required to realise a more sustainable future.

“Ryan’s extensive experience working with international insurance markets, together with his deep understanding of the challenges our clients face, will be invaluable in the development of new solutions that support organisations in achieving their climate and sustainability-related goals.”

Bond added: “There is a clear opportunity for greater innovation in risk transfer, underwriting, and risk management to support global climate ambitions, and for insurance to be a more immediate catalyst for change. 

“I look forward to working with our clients, colleagues, and the wider insurance community to build resilience amid increasing climate volatility and develop nature-positive insurance solutions.”
