To have Hanna join our board, and chair our risk committee, will undoubtedly help us accelerate our strategic priorities - to reinstate the original purpose of insurance, protect people against unforeseen events and support them in their times of need.”

Ms Jacobsson added: “Wefox is disrupting and reinventing the world of insurance. In so doing, it has kept people at the heart of the business through its indirect distribution model. Added to that are a culture and value set that mirror my own.
