Hyperion X Analytics, the data and technology focused analytics and advisory unit of the global Hyperion Insurance Group, has announced the hiring of experienced insurance and reinsurance sector executive Julian Alovisi as Head of Research.
The move continues to build-out of Hyperion X as a best-in-class insurance and reinsurance industry advisory and research house, adding to other key hires made in the last year or so, that included David Flandro as leader of the unit and Mark Shumway to bring capital markets experience.
The Head of Research role is a new one and Alovisi will be tasked with driving forwards Hyperion’s differentiated research and thought leadership function during what the company sees as a period of profound change in the insurance and reinsurance market.
Reporting directly to David Flandro, Managing Director, Hyperion X Analytics, Alovisi brings more than 15 years’ expertise to the new position.
Alovisi commented on his new role, “I am extremely excited to join the team at Hyperion X. There is a gap in the market for non-periodical, relevant, impactful research. We will elevate insurance sector insights to new heights by leveraging the unique and proprietary data held within our organisation. This distinct capability will enable Hyperion to compile best-in-class market views that are unique, topical and independent. Clients will be at the very heart of the new research offering, enabling them to understand, and even anticipate important market trends.”
David Flandro added, “At a time of significant consolidation within the (re)insurance intermediary arena, the need for an authoritative and independent broking voice has never been greater. Hyperion is uniquely placed to fill this void. By bringing impactful analysis of sector trends to the fore, we will inform and lead the discussion, enabling us to facilitate the most innovative client solutions.”
Alovisi’s experience is predominantly from the world of insurance and reinsurance broking, having most recently worked at Guy Carpenter and before that JLT Re.
There, he led research and publications for the reinsurance brokers, creating reports and commentary on sector trends and reinsurance renewal conditions.
