EY has appointed James Anderson as a UK consulting partner, as it responds to rising market demand and invests in growth.  

James will lead EY’s pricing consultancy practice, which offers pricing strategy and advises on innovations in analytics and technology to non-life insurance firms. 

James joins from Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS), a multinational global corporate insurance carrier, where he was the Deputy Global Chief Pricing Actuary. Prior to this role he held leadership roles in CUO Portfolio Management and CFO Actuarial. James has over 20 years’ experience, with deep commercial and reinsurance pricing expertise, and has delivered a number of large-scale global pricing transformations. In addition to pricing, James has extensive experience across analytics, portfolio management and underwriting steering.  

Paul Sparkes, UK Financial Services Consulting Leader at EY, comments: “I am delighted to welcome James to EY to lead a high performing pricing consultancy team, which is an area we are expanding in, in response to rising demand from companies for technology and data led innovations to help manage their costs. James has a wealth of experience which will be crucial to our financial services clients as they navigate their digital transformation journeys in the current macroeconomic environment.”  

James Anderson comments: “In the current environment of high inflation and shifting market conditions, having an effective pricing strategy is critical for the ability of insurers to manage the cycle and drive top- and bottom-line growth. I am delighted to join EY at this time of high demand in the market. EY has an excellent team in place and I look forward to working with them to deliver pricing transformation for our clients.”
