London Market Group Re-Appoints Aubert as Chairman

April 28, 2017

The London Market Group (LMG) announced the re-appointment of Nicolas Aubert, head of Great Britain for Willis Towers Watson, as its chair.

The last 12 months has seen progress across all LMG’s workstreams, including market modernization work, including the launch of PPL, the London market’s electronic placing platform. (PPL is an initiative of the London market’s Target Operating Model, or TOM, a program that aims to modernize the market and make it easier to do business in and with the London market.).

“The curve ball of 2016 was Brexit, but this has given us both opportunities and challenges,” he said, noting that the LMG is working very closely with the government to “protect our businesses and make positive changes that will allow our unique marketplace to grow and thrive.”

Aubert has served as the head of Great Britain at Willis Towers Watson since Jan. 4, 2016 and he also serves as the CEO of Willis Limited, the legal entity covering UK based activities from legacy Willis. Previously, Aubert served as CEO of Willis GB, the operating segment of Willis Group Holdings, which included Willis’ London specialty businesses and facultative, and the retail insurance business in Great Britain.

Prior to joining Willis, Aubert served as the chief operating officer of American International Group (AIG) in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and also as managing director of AIG in the UK. After joining AIG in June 2002 to lead AIG France, Aubert held various senior management positions, including managing director of Southern Europe, where he oversaw operations in 12 countries, including Israel.

Prior to AIG, Mr. Aubert worked in various leadership positions at ACE, CIGNA, GAN and started his career at Generali. He holds specialized Masters Degrees in Insurance Law (DESS Assurances) from Pantheon-Sorbonne University of Paris and from Institut des Assurances de Paris (Universite Paris-Dauphine) and an M.B.A. from the French High Insurance Studies Center (CHEA).

The LMG represents specialist commercial re/insurance broking and underwriting communities in London.
