Let's talk

Ed Harrison


I help insurers with a wide range of actuarial and risk management challenges. My clients value my hands-on, collaborative approach, and my ability to clearly cut through the technical detail and get to the key issues. I have over 10 years’ industry experience and hold a UK Chief Actuary’s Practicing Certificate.

On the actuarial side, my main areas of expertise are reserving, outsourced actuarial function, and Solvency II. I have led reserve reviews for a wide range of personal lines, commercial lines and London Market insurers and have provided actuarial function support to several others. I am also a Solvency II expert and have helped firms navigate the technical aspects of compliance in a pragmatic and value-adding way.

On the risk management and ERM side, I have helped insurers in a wide range of areas, including: producing and reviewing ORSA reports; managing the end-to-end risk management process; validating capital models; and performing deep-dive reviews in areas from exposure management to people risk.

I also hold the following volunteer roles at the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries:

  • Member of the general insurance practice board
  • Chair of the reserving research group
  • Member of the lifelong learning committee, which organises the GIRO conference.

Although we outsource our actuarial function, Ed is very much part of our team. Ed is proactive, quickly identifies key issues and cuts through complex detail. He has helped us enhance the benefits of the actuarial function throughout our business.”
