About Ethics and Insurance

I'm Duncan Minty and I help insurance firms achieve greater certainty on ethical issues.

I set up 'Ethics and Insurance' to help insurance people around the world learn about what that involves and how to do the ethical things that can build trust in you and your firm. 

I've been an independent ethics consultant for 17 years and I specialise in the insurance market. I'm also qualified in the UK as a Chartered Insurance Practitioner. So I know how the market works.

Speaking

I've been a guest speaker at numerous insurance conferences, bringing insight and an ethical perspective to insurance audiences.
