RPC Consulting expands with two senior hires

Published on 08 December 2016

RPC Consulting – the insurance consultancy arm of City-headquartered professional services firm RPC – has hired two highly recognised leaders from the insurance industry to boost the business in London.

John Rowland and Sam Worthington, who both previously worked at Willis Towers Watson, joined RPC Consulting in November.

John Rowland brings over 20 years' experience in software, capital issues and consulting for life insurers and will head RPC Consulting's Life Insurance capability with a focus on software for life insurers. In his previous role, John was global leader for life insurance capital modelling, responsible for developing consulting propositions and software solutions to measure and manage risk and capital covering regulatory uses such as Solvency II and internal uses such as in an Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA).

John Rowland says: "RPC Consulting is made up of highly respected industry figures and there is a real entrepreneurial spirit to the team. I am also really excited by the firm's proprietary software product Tyche whose capabilities, especially speed, are a disruptive force that will be a game changer for life insurers. There is also a clear strategy for growth and a commitment to client service."

Sam Worthington has joined RPC Consulting to broaden RPC’s modelling and consulting capabilities in Investment, Asset Liability Management (ALM) and General Insurance. He has 13 years of experience of developing consulting and software solutions in financial modelling, pricing and risk analytics for the insurance, pension and asset management communities. In his previous role, Sam was the Global Head of Economic Scenario Generation and asset modelling.

Sam says: "I believe RPC’s Tyche software is very well placed to fill a major longstanding gap and provide a capital modelling solution for Life and General Insurers on a single platform. It is testament to Tyche’s openness, flexibility and speed that it has been chosen by major global insurers in the last year for pricing and capital modelling ahead of more established software.” 

Alun Marriott said: "John and Sam are both highly respected professionals who bring a wealth of experience to RPC Consulting. Their appointments bolster the Consulting business and provide us with increased knowledge of actuarial software and asset modelling to better enhance our offering to our clients. The addition of John and Sam is a huge boost for us."

RPC Consulting was launched in early 2015 and since then has further developed Tyche, its state of the art financial modelling tool. Tyche gives the industry a faster, more flexible way to explore, manage and communicate risks.
