The Association of British Insurers’ director general is standing down from the trade body at the end of the year to join KPMG.

Huw Evans (pictured) will move on from his role at the ABI in December to join KPMG as a partner in its insurance and long-term savings practice from January.

Evans, who has been ABI director general since 2015, has held a number of senior roles at the trade body.

He joined the ABI in 2008 as operations director, before becoming director of policy and deputy director general in 2013.

Evans said: “It’s been a huge privilege to help lead the insurance and long-term savings sector but I am now in my seventh year as director general and it feels the right time to be preparing to move on.

“I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to stay in the sector and carry on helping it meet the fast-changing requirements of customers, regulators and our economy.”

Evans added: “There is still plenty to do and I look forward to focusing on Solvency II reform, improving customer outcomes, general insurance pricing and developing our climate change roadmap in my remaining seven months.”

The ABI said a full recruitment process to appoint a director general would commence shortly.
