Prior to that, he worked on the Island for a local insurance entity and a CSP vehicle. Allan has over a decade of experience delivering regulatory compliance, risk management and corporate governance advisory services to financial services clients, primarily in the insurance industry.
Professional and Industry Experience
Allan has predominantly worked with the Manx, Irish and UK life insurance industries, including mutuals, composites, closed book aggregators and pure unit-linked books, as well as working with the Bank of England as they transitioned into the new Solvency II regime.
Allan works with Simon in the Isle of Man insurance practice with a focus on advisory engagements, focusing in particular on the developing local FSA requirements, as well as Solvency II compliance work in Gibraltar.
Representative Industry Experience
Allan’s experience includes all elements of Systems of Governance design, development and deployment in Manx and EU financial services entities, interpretation of the legislative and guideline developments in that space (e.g. IAIS ICPs, Solvency II Directive and Delegated Acts, EIOPA Guidelines, FSA consultation papers), and the reporting requirements following implementation (e.g. Own Risk and Solvency Assessments, SFCRs, public reporting).
Allan has designed and led training and briefing materials for NEDS, executives and business-as-usual staff on impending regulatory changes, as well as having performed a number of review-related supervisory tasks on ORSA, Systems of Governance and Public Reporting for the Bank of England in advance of Solvency II. He also has extensive experience in the design and implementation of “three lines of defense” models aligned to developing global expectations in the field.
Prior to working as a Consultant, Allan designed and deployed an award-nominated Enterprise-wide Risk Management program for a listed insurance entity, including building a bespoke management information system tailored to the stated risk tolerances of the directorate.
Allan has participated as a trainer, speaker or guest writer on risk advisory matters for a number of organisations, including the Institute of Risk Management, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and the Investment and Life Assurance Group, and ran an award nominated Blog during his time working independently.
