London Market Group announces new sponsor for Business Environment Workstream21.09.20
The London Market Group today announced that Sean McGovern, Chief Executive, UK & Lloyd’s market at AXA XL, has become the sponsor for the workstream which proactively engages with the UK government, parliamentary parties and the civil service, ensuring they better understand the position of the London Market and its place in the UK economy. He will replace Malcolm Newman, Managing Director, EMEA Hub, SCOR.
Matthew Moore, Chair of the LMG and CEO of Liberty Specialty Markets said: “Over the last five years, we have built a broad range of relationships across Westminster and Whitehall, establishing a clear identity and voice for the London Market and a much better understanding of its contribution to the UK economy and its specific needs. Malcolm has made a tremendous contribution to this work and I would like to thank him for the expertise, energy and time he has devoted to the workstream.
“I am delighted that Sean has agreed to take over as sponsor. The depth of his experience in the London market gained from his time as General Counsel and Chief Risk Officer at Lloyd’s gives him a great perspective on the work that we are doing. Our agenda will focus on future trading arrangements for the market, as well as the support government and regulators can give to market innovations and making London more competitive internationally.”
