LexisNexis Risk Solutions has announced the appointment of Nick Wilmot, ACII, chartered insurance practitioner and a respected expert in the home insurance market, as senior manager, Home Insurance for U.K. and Ireland.   

The firm said the appointment of an insurance industry professional with more than a decade of experience in business development, pricing and technical underwriting, underlines its commitment to “deliver data solutions that anticipate and respond to the highly specific challenges of the home insurance market”.

Wilmot joins LexisNexis from NFU Mutual where he has spent over six years, latterly as head of High Net Worth. Prior to this, Wilmot was a senior technical Underwriter at Allianz following an Insurance Advisor role at Endsleigh. 

He is also an author of the 2020 PL3 CII Home Insurance textbook, has been part of the CII’s New Generation Programme focused on underwriting, and is currently studying for an MBA at Henley Business School.   

Martyn Mathews, senior director, Personal Lines, U.K. and Ireland, LexisNexis Risk Solutions said: “We are delighted to have someone of Nick’s calibre on board. He brings an intimate understanding of the dynamics of the home insurance sector and the challenges insurance providers face – rate hardening, alterations in policyholder behaviour due to Covid-19, claims fraud and extreme weather events, to name a few. 

“This will be hugely valuable in driving innovation and helping us deliver solutions that support insurance providers in meeting the changing needs of their customers.” 

Wilmot added: “As my insurance career has progressed, it has become abundantly clear that technology, data and analytics are game-changers for the home insurance market, but we are really at the early stages of what is possible. 

LexisNexis Risk Solutions brings a fantastic opportunity to work with home insurance providers on their data strategies, build solutions to solve some of the market’s biggest challenges, and to maximise the opportunities new data sources such as IoT are set to bring, all with the interests of the customer front and centre.”
