How Kevin is building a better working world

Kevin works with insurers to help implement changes to accounting and regulatory requirements in an efficient way. These result in the production of more transparent information to regulators, shareholders, policyholders and other stakeholders. Making these changes presents insurers with an opportunity to embrace new technologies and make better use of data to understand performance and manage risk.
