James Quin joins PwC from Citigroup to head insurance market reporting business
PwC in the UK has recruited James Quin to join its financial services accounting advisory business. He joins from Citigroup, where he was a managing director and head of European insurance equity research.
This includes helping insurers respond to the numerous communication challenges posed by the requirements of Solvency II and the new insurance IFRS Phase II.
Quin’s previous positions include insurance analyst roles at Lehman Brothers, HSBC and SG Securities. He is an alumnus of PwC (1990 – 2000).
Mark Stephen, UK insurance leader at PwC, said: "James is one of Europe’s leading insurance analysts with an excellent understanding of the industry. His skills, experience and understanding of investor needs will bring significant value to our clients, particularly as they deal with the exceptional challenges of Solvency II and IFRS Phase II. This new team will further enhance our ability to support clients across their business and help them to effectively address the needs of management, investors and regulators."
Quin commented: "The insurance industry’s poor market performance in comparison to other sectors is partly due to inconsistent, overly complex and sometimes opaque reporting, which often fails to communicate a clear message to investors. I will work on helping insurers understand what really drives the capital markets and how to turn the regulatory and reporting upheaval away from a compliance headache into a competitive opportunity."
