About Benedict Altier
Strategy consultant with experience helping insurers and asset managers to navigate the risks and opportunities of the digital economy.
Reimagining Risk: To address risks of the modern age we need to leverage disruptive innovation to tackle humanities biggest challenges. I set-up Octocol to research new ways to manage and transfer risk in the digital economy and co-founded Ultravity to help make decentralised finance safer for all.
My experience lies at the intersection of technology, strategy, financial services and innovation. I have experience researching Chinese artificial intelligence and blockchain innovation, working with global asset managers and insurers and building websites and applications for startups.
In financial services, I have experience working across general, commercial and specialty insurance and asset management. I have worked on projects including corporate and GTM strategy, transformation and change programs, net-zero & carbon footprinting, natural catastrophe risk modelling & pricing and digital & data strategy.
