This is an exciting time to be given the opportunity to lead the ABI. Our world is changing fast but the future is there to be shaped.

The challenges posed by our changing world to the UK are significant; the effects of climate change, an ageing population, outdated legal frameworks and the ongoing digital revolution to name but a few. The UK insurance industry is changing fast too, becoming more confident in trying to engage to shape public policy and regulatory outcomes.

Huw Evans, ABI

We know - but so many people still do not - that the provision of insurance and effective management of long-term savings is at the heart of every successful economy in the world. We need to become even more confident about promoting our value, while continuing to face up with brutal self-appraisal to the ongoing lack of consumer trust and confidence across all parts of the insurance and long-term savings markets.

As the UK's foremost insurance trade body, the ABI has a key role to play in helping the industry face outwards, while at the same time helping its member firms navigate regulatory and political processes of increasing volume and complexity. Our task is an important one - and the ABI team relishes tackling the challenges ahead with our member firms.
