James Bolton, Director

James is a director of Quest Group Holdings Limited.

“I enjoy using my accounting skills to analyse run-off balance sheets and portfolios for acquisition.  I also enjoy the management of such run-offs as they often bring a variety of different aspects and stimulating challenges. Working in legacy in the 1990s and 2000s typically meant acquiring knowledge of historic insurance pools, handling asbestos and pollution claims, and implementing collection and commutation strategies on the reinsurance asset.  These developed skills are then tailored and improved to successfully address whatever run-off challenges presently arise.

I was proud to be asked to join the IRLA Board, and I have found it to be a collaborative and pro-active Board, full of experience and brimming with positive ideas for change and improvement. To me, IRLA is about education, reputation, market expertise, and networking. It is incredibly important to welcome new entrants to the industry and help confirm that run-off is a great choice for a career.”
