Ethics and insurance is also my business: Duncan Minty Consultancy Ltd. I advise insurers, brokers and professional bodies on the ethical issues that matter to the market. This covers planning, risk, training and assessment, plus a host of other themes. With over 14 years as an independent consultant, I’ve helped firms gain greater certainty in ethics in many types of situations: underwriting, claims, sales and more.
Here are the main services I provide.
My ‘ethics briefings’ are popular – an in-house workshop to take a close look at a particular issue. Big data, insurance fraud and ethical leadership top the list at the moment.
