Ed is CEO of IRL, a UK-based insurance broker dedicated to helping launch new insurtech brokers and MGAs. As part of this he hopes to help insurtechs make the leap from the UK to the US, and vice versa.
Prior to this Ed headed up the Lloyd’s Lab, the home of InsurTech and innovation at Lloyd’s of London, from its launch in 2018 through to the start of its ninth cohort in 2022. Through this period he met hundreds of insurtechs from the UK and the US and helped to accelerate dozens of solutions.
Ed started his career as a defense engineer, before moving to KPMG and EY as a management consultant, focussing on data, tech, and analytics… but never for insurers.
