Yes, we missed this one earlier in the week;
The Ardonagh Group, a top 20 global insurance broker and the UK’s largest independent insurance broker, has announced it will open the Ardonagh Global Data and Risk Management Centre this month, bringing 60 new highly-skilled, data science and analysis roles to Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.
The Data and Risk Management Centre will deliver data-driven insights to Ardonagh’s clients across the globe and help its 7,000+ colleagues offer tailored solutions across a diverse range of insurance products and related services.
CEO of Arachas Conor Brennan, who created the concept, led an approach to IDA Ireland, securing the support of the Irish Government through meaningful investment into the initiative. Ardonagh intends to work closely with the Athlone Institute of Technology to offer its graduates local and world-class career opportunities.
David Ross, CEO of The Ardonagh Group, said: “Our Global Data and Risk Management Centre will focus entirely on improved outcomes for every participant in the value chain; forensically investigating our pool of data to build an improved understanding of risk, examining possible future outcomes and working with clients and insurer partners in preparation for the unknown.
