Why Combined Ratio Is Holding Insurance Back | James Platt, Trimstone Partners

In the final episode of Season 5 of Making Risk Flow, host Juan de Castro sits down with James Platt, Co-Founder and Operating Partner of Trimstone Partners, a boutique strategy consulting business focused on supporting major strategic change in the insurance, asset and wealth management industries. James has an illustrious career in operational transformation and technology innovation, having played pivotal roles as a consultant and partner at Boston Consulting Group and as the CEO of Digital Solutions at Aon.

Together, Juan and James discuss why James believes the combined ratio is the worst thing that ever happened to the insurance industry, the reasons why the industry hasn’t evolved as successfully as the mortgage and asset management sectors have, and why data, digitisation, and decision-making can be the levers for change.
