Convex Group Limited, an international specialty insurer, and reinsurer, has announced the promotion of Brian Bissett to group chief economic officer. Bissett will be based in London and report to Paul Brand, CEO of Convex.
As part of a planned evolution of roles, Bissett will succeed Benji Meuli, who is stepping aside to become chief investment officer. Meuli will stay on the Convex board and continue to represent the company’s investment process.
Bissett will oversee Convex’s finance function while retaining obligations for the company’s data and actuarial teams.
Bissett joined Convex at its inception in 2019 as the group’s chief actuary. He has more than 30 years of knowledge in the data and actuarial sector and has held senior positions at Catlin, XL Catlin, and Zurich. He is a guy from the Institute of Actuaries.
“Brian has been instrumental in not only building and leading Convex’s successful actuarial and claims functions but in orchestrating Convex’s data agenda,” Brand said. “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,” Brand said. “I am delighted that we will still benefit from his extensive expertise in his new role of CIO.”
