JBA, based in London, consists of consulting actuaries and statistical and insurance risk experts, who specialise in the London insurance market and the captive insurance market sector.
Commenting on the merger, Paul Latarche, partner and head of insurance at Moore Stephens, said: “JBA enjoys an enviable reputation for high calibre practitioners delivering quality consulting services, using state of the art risk modelling techniques and tools. In looking to build our own actuarial practice we saw no better fit than JBA.”
Latarche added: “Together, we offer considerable expertise and capacity for insurers looking for actuarial support or drawing on outsourced actuarial services.”
Dewi James, current managing director of JBA, will head up the actuarial team at Moore Stephens.
James commented: “[Moore Stephens] suited our style and direct approach to finding success, including large scale solutions, strong communications and project management for clients.”
