Reassured, the UK’s largest life insurance broker * , has appointed Ed Wagener as Chief Financial Officer.

Ed joins from retail firm Not on the High Street, but previously held the CFO position at Compare the Market between 2015 and 2020.

He will work closely with the board and CEO, Steve Marshall, as the business continues its ambitious growth plans.

Steve Marshall said:

Ed completes what I believe is the most formidable executive team in the life industry.

He brings a wealth of relevant experience as well as the positive mentality which has been key to our growth and success to date.

The broker’s senior team is further bolstered by the arrival of Jeremy Marsden as non-executive director.

Marsden had stints with Barclays and the FCA before joining Reassured’s recently installed chairman, Matthew Donaldson, as chief risk and compliance officer at BGL group, a position he held until 2021.

Steve Marshall continued:

Along with Jeremy and our chairman, Matthew, he was part of the impressive team which drove Compare the Market and BGL to dominance in its sector and we are thrilled to welcome him to the team.

Ed Wagener added:

Steve and his co-founder Laura Benton (COO) have built a phenomenal business with an unrivalled track record of growth and success over more than a decade.

They have clearly defined plans for further expansion which I am excited to help them achieve.

Operating in digital, non-advised and advised channels, Reassured is uniquely placed to expand through organic growth across its seven sites, as well as through corporate partnerships via a white label solution for large firms looking to offer life insurance to their customer base.
