How Martyn is building a better working world

“I am excited and proud to be involved in a lot of consulting projects in both emerging and developed markets that drive financial transparency and promote broader financial inclusion. Providing access to more meaningful, reliable and timely financial information based on internationally recognized standards ensures there is a level playing field which can make a real difference for our clients and ultimately in people’s lives.

Insurance fulfills an essential need of companies and people to off-load undue risks at a fair price.  Macroeconomic, social and regulatory trends continue to challenge insurers to adapt. I connect insurers with new reporting standards, advanced technologies and optimized operating models, enabling them to offer innovative products and services to meet the evolving needs of their clients.”
