Moore Stephens merges with captive-experienced actuarial firm

Advisory firm Moore Stephens has merged with James, Brennan & Associates (JBA), a London-based firm of experienced consulting actuaries and statistical and insurance risk experts, with substantial knowledge of the London insurance market and the corporate and captive insurance market sector.

“JBA enjoys an enviable reputation for high calibre practitioners delivering quality consulting services, using state of the art risk modelling techniques and tools,” said Paul Latarche, partner and head of insurance at Moore Stephens.

“In looking to build our own actuarial practice we saw no better fit than JBA. Together, we offer considerable expertise and capacity for insurers looking for actuarial support or drawing on outsourced actuarial services.”

Dewi James, managing director of JBA, will head up the bolstered actuarial team at Moore Stephens.

James added: “Moore Stephens offered the international breadth and size, together with complimentary services including RuleBook, their market leading pricing and distribution solution, which is in demand in the insurance market. The insurance practice suited our style and direct approach to finding success, including large scale solutions, strong communications and project management for clients.”
