Paul Towler, Senior Partner for JLT Specialty’s Financial Lines Group, said: ‘We are delighted to have Matthew join our already successful Financial Institutions team. He has a deep-rooted knowledge of the myriad of risk issues which are faced by financial institutions across the sector, and this will no doubt be a major asset to the team and help us grow and strengthen and offering to new and existing clients.’
