ABI Future Leaders


What is it? 

The ABI Future Leaders programme is an award-winning executive development programme for up and coming senior insurance industry leaders. The year-long course will help equip senior leaders with the expertise they need to lead insurance and long-term savings companies and will introduce them to key influencers outside of the industry, legislatorsregulators, as well as exposing them to existing CEOs.  

Who should take part? 

The programme is aimed at up and coming senior leaders who can use what they learn almost immediately. This will typically be a senior manager with a significant line or functional responsibility with high potential for a more senior leadership position and they will report into the Executive Committee.  

Commitment to diversity 

The ABI is committed to supporting diverse talent in the industry and we aim for a 50/50 gender balance on this programme. We encourage member firms to use the programme to complement their own efforts and consider applications from suitable candidates that represent diversity of thought and background.
