Current Responsibility

Nigel is the head of the non-Life Practice in Milliman’s Dublin office. He joined Milliman in May 2017.


Nigel specialises in property and casualty insurance and reinsurance. His experience spans more than 20 years in Ireland and in the London (re)insurance market. His London market experience gives him a wide breadth of insight into many classes and jurisdictions, including property, casualty, aviation and marine written on a direct, facultative or treaty basis, in the United States, the UK and Ireland, Japan, Australia, the Caribbean and many other incidental locations. He has particular experience of PPOs in the UK and of a range of U.S. Casualty lines, including worker’s compensation and medical malpractice as written on a broker slip basis.

Nigel joined Milliman after holding a range of senior actuarial and management roles with the Berkshire Hathaway Group in the General Reinsurance Corp London entities. In particular, Nigel served as regional chief actuary (UK) for the Gen Re Group, and statutory chief actuary for Faraday Syndicate 435 at Lloyd’s.

Nigel’s remit is to develop and strengthen the Dublin non-Life practice while using his London market background to build links with the practice in London.

Currently, Nigel advises companies on reserving, pricing and the capital implications of the Solvency II regulatory regime.

Nigel holds a Chief Actuary (with Lloyd’s) Practicing Certificate.

Nigel has previous board experience with the Faraday Group of Companies in London and has participated on various risk committees, including chairman of the Reserving Committee. In addition, he was a member of General Re’s Global Risk Committee which considered the risks impacting the overall Gen Re Group, including the potential catastrophe risk aggregations across many legal entities writing correlated risks.

In addition, Nigel participates on the Society of Actuaries in Ireland PPO working party which is addressing the technical and regulatory aspects of impending regulations affecting claim settlements.
