Aon taps Aeolus for Bermuda global clients role
Aon has hired a former Aeolus and Guy Carpenter executive to head its global clients reinsurance segment in Bermuda.
Jake Nichols will be senior managing director in Bermuda, reporting to Dave Nicholson, head of Aon’s global reinsurance clients segment.
He joins from Aeolus Capital Management, where he has been a portfolio manager since 2020, having served previously as senior vice president at reinsurance broker Guy Carpenter for nearly a decade.
Aon said Nichols will develop innovative risk transfer solutions that optimise clients’ capital strategies, matching risk with capital to create growth opportunities for the industry, with a particular focus on global clients.
Nicholson said: “We are excited to have Jake join our growing Global Reinsurance Clients team, which highlights our continued investment in this area and ongoing drive to deliver optimal value for clients.
“In addition to his specific account responsibilities, Jake will act as a GRC conduit into the Bermuda market, identifying capacity for our clients in order to navigate volatility by helping shape better decisions.”
