Jensten Group Appoints New Risk and Compliance Director

The Jensten Group has appointed Steve Folkard as Group Risk and Compliance Director, effective 1st December 2021.

Steve will be responsible for leading the risk and compliance team across the rapidly expanding Jensten Group portfolio. Under Steve’s direction the team will be focused on delivering best in class support to the Group’s franchised and non-franchised broking operations, as well as its wholesale broking and underwriting businesses. His appointment follows a period of rapid growth for the Jensten Group at a time of significant regulatory change across the insurance market.

Steve, who has over 30 years’ insurance and consultancy experience, joins from the BGL Group where he was Group Compliance Director. Prior to this he was a Director at PWC leading the conduct and compliance team across both wholesale and retail UK insurance markets.

Steve commented:

“Jensten is expanding rapidly, and I am looking forward to ensuring the Risk and Compliance function continues to be a key component in ensuring the business can achieve its growth ambitions, provide great value products to its customers and best in class support to its partners.”

Alistair Hardie, Group Chief Executive Officer, Jensten Group added:

“We have grown exponentially over the last 18 months, both organically and through a successful mergers and acquisitions programme. This appointment underlines that with over £300m gross written premium we are now a serious player in the UK insurance broking market, and the importance we place in investing in those with the experience and skills to ensure we continue to deliver to our customers and our partners.”
