Marsh JLT Specialty appoints UK digital asset leader

Marsh JLT Specialty has appointed Ankur Kacker as UK digital asset leader in the financial and professional (FINPRO) practice.

Kacker joined Marsh in Mumbai as a graduate in 2008 and moved to London in 2017 as part of the UK specie practice, where he specialised in digital assets insurance. During his 13 year career he has worked with clients across a wide range of industries including financial institutions and technology organisations.

His new role gives him responsibility for developing new insurance solutions for digital assets such as cryptocurrency. He remains in London and continues to work with the business’s New York based digital asset risk transfer (DART) team, which offers risk transfer solutions to firms operating in the areas of blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital assets.

Kacker reports to Philip Turner, specie practice leader, who described him as “the driving force behind many innovations in the highly specialist digital assets insurance market.”

Kacker added: “As greater clarity around regulatory issues continues to emerge, organisations across the business spectrum – from large financial institutions to technology providers – are making significant investments to capitalise on opportunities using blockchain technology and digital assets.”
