Miqdaad Versi, Partner and ESG Lead
Miqdaad leads engagements on sustainability strategy and delivery for some of the world's largest (re)insurers. He has a wide network spanning the executive and sustainability leaders teams of large (re)insurers, industry bodies, and other organisations such as the United Nations Environmental Programme and the Insurance Development Forum.
Graduating with a first class degree in Mathematics from the University of Oxford, Miqdaad has a strong technical skillset, allowing him to dig beneath the surface to uncover the real problems facing the executive teams with whom he is working. He balances strategic and market knowledge with pragmatism to drive towards solutions that deliver for his clients.

He is a regular commentator on the topic for industry seminars, podcasts and summits, and often provides comments to the press on topical issues.
