January Lunch

Best Western Moores Hotel
Wednesday, 22 January 2020
12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Our January speakers are Liam Cunningham and Rosemary Stevens, Deputy Directors in the Banking and Insurance Division at the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.

Liam joined the Commission in 2011 as a supervisor in the Banking Division, prior to which he had spent the previous 12 years in a number of credit and risk roles in the oil and energy sector. In 2013 the Commission merged the Banking and Insurance Divisions under the direction of Dr Jeremy Quick. Consequently, Liam expanded his knowledge and experience into insurance supervision and was promoted to Deputy Director in August 2018. Liam has been involved in the prudential supervision of both the Insurance and Banking sectors in Guernsey and has recently been responsible for the cross sector cyber thematic review.

Rosemary joined the Commission in 2011, having worked both in industry and for a number of years in the fiduciary sector, as Assistant Director within the Fiduciary Services Division responsible for businesses registered with the Commission. In August 2013 she transferred to the Banking and Insurance Division to head up the Commission’s newly established Conduct Unit. Rosemary has continued to focus on conduct supervision and has been responsible for a number of thematic reviews of the insurance intermediary sector, initially in respect of long-term business before turning her attention to thematic reviews of general insurance intermediaries. Rosemary is a chartered accountant and member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.

Key learning points:

  • The role of the Commission
