How Phil is building a better working world

“Insurance offers a vital service to societies, providing a safety net which allows the risk taking needed for economic growth while protecting families from adversity. However, a protection gap still exists, due in some part to inefficiencies in the business model which prevent insurance capital from getting to where it’s needed. In my work with clients, I am proud to help them find ways to reduce operating cost and allocate capital more efficiently to bridge this protection gap.”
