Dominic Grinstead appointed new Chair of the ABI Protection Committee

Dominic Grinstead, UK Managing Director at MetLife, has been appointed as the new Chair of the ABI’s Protection Committee, taking over from outgoing Chair Russell Higginbotham of Swiss Re. 

The ABI’s Protection Committee sets the strategic direction of the ABI’s work on protection policy. The Committee’s role is to help the sector promote the huge value it provides to consumers across the UK, whilst driving improved standards across the industry and proactively identifying and addressing potential risks.

A key priority for the Protection Committee is to advance the Government’s work and health agenda and to promote the important role that protection products play in securing consumers’ financial future.

Yvonne Braun, ABI Director of Policy, Long-Term Savings and Protection, said:

"We’re excited to welcome Dominic as the new Chair of the ABI’s Protection Committee. With a decade at the helm of MetLife’s UK business, Dominic will bring invaluable experience to the role. This Committee plays a key role to help ensure consumers and stakeholders fully appreciate the role of protection products in helping people back to work following illness or injury. Dominic’s impressive track record will bring a strong consumer focus to this work.”

Dominic has 30 years of experience in financial services and has been with MetLife for more than ten years, originally serving as Marketing Director before taking over as Managing Director of MetLife UK in 2009. Under Dominic’s leadership MetLife has become one of the UK’s leading providers of employee benefits and with an expanding individual protection business.                         

Dominic Grinstead, Managing Director or MetLife UK, said:

"I’m delighted to take on the role as Protection Committee Chair at the ABI. I’m particularly looking forward to working with fellow members, the ABI and other stakeholders to demonstrate the vital role that protection products play in our customers’ day-to-day lives.”
