Fidelis Insurance has appointed Olivia Brindle as its new head of sustainability. Brindle joins Fidelis from Swiss Re where she was an investor relations senior manager.

“We are setting ambitious goals in every area of E, S and G and we aim to be a leader in all three,” Charles Mathias, group director of underwriting at Fidelis, said. “As such we wanted to find a head of ESG who understands how the industry works and what stakeholders from policyholders to shareholders are looking for from a partner. Having worked as an insurance analyst at banks, and partnered with the ESG team at Swiss Re, we think Olivia will bring analytical skills, industry knowledge and a real passion to the role.”

Brindle added: “The goal is to bring honesty, rigour and accountability to the treatment of sustainability topics. These discussions raise many fundamental questions and we - all insurers, all corporates - must continually refine our approach while making a tangible impact through how we do business every day.”
