Fitch Ratings has appointed Augusto Hidalgo as Global Head of Insurance Industry Sales, where he will be based in London.
Hidalgo made the announcement earlier this week on LinkedIn.
With over 30 years of experience working within the industry, Hidalgo brings a strong level of expertise towards his new role.
He joins from WTW, where he held the role of Head of Climate and Resilience Hub, Southeast Asia. He held this role for just under four years.
Prior to that he served as Chief Executive Officer of National Reinsurance Corporation of the Philippines (Nat Re), a role he held for four years.
In addition, he has also previously served as Head of M&A at Peak Reinsurance, and was also a Managing Partner for seven years at New World Financial.
However, Hidalgo’s longest tenure was with Swiss Re, where he spent nine years serving as a Senior Underwriter.
