RELATED TOPICS​

Willis Towers Watson has appointed two investment industry experts, Ashwin Belur and Dhiran Dookhi, to its growing insurance investment solutions group.

This follows the similar senior appointment of Bob Tyley to the same team and other senior appointments of Tim Mitchell and Ed Wilson, to meet growing demand for broad investment services from a range of institutional investors globally.  
 
Keith Goodby (pictured), head of the insurance investment solutions group at Willis Towers Watson, says: “Ashwin and Dhiran join us at an exciting stage in the development of our investment advisory and solutions business for insurers. We face unprecedented global demand from insurance companies aiming to maximise risk-adjusted returns through better governance, improved risk management and portfolio solutions. With the additional skills and experience that Ashwin and Dhiran bring, we are well placed to help our clients optimise their investment portfolios in a highly regulated, competitive and low-return environment.”
 
Belur has almost 30 years of industry experience during which time he has held a variety of senior investment and insurance-related positions at Goldman Sachs, ABN AMRO, Brit Insurance and most recently BlackRock.
 
Dookhi is a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and joins from Prudential, where he was a risk actuary working on enterprise risk management. Prior to this he gained broad insurance and investment experience at The Phoenix Group, Sun Life Financial of Canada and the Pension Protection Fund.
