Mr Maneval's appointment further strengthens and broadens the company’s insurance consulting capabilities to align with changing client needs and market demand across the Asia region.

In his new role, Mr Maneval is responsible for leading and developing the non-life insurance consulting practice across South Asia, covering countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. His focus is to provide consulting to the insurance industry regarding financial and regulatory reporting, market strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and risk management.
He brings more than fifteen years of experience in the insurance and reinsurance sectors to the position, following roles that have included pricing, reserving, catastrophe modelling, reinsurance optimisation, rating agencies, capital modelling and capital management.
