About Our Team

Hugh Evans

Managing Director

Following a 25-year trading career in investment banking, Hugh has taken the leap across the great divide between banking and insurance. With two daughters working as underwriters at Lloyd’s he was drawn to the challenges of the modernisation of trading and regulatory reporting for the insurance industry.

Hugh joined JDX in 2015 as CEO of JDX for Insurance and has spent the last two years working with insurers to develop the skills of JDX consultants to deliver modernisation, implementation and delivery services tailored to the insurance industry. Hugh is responding to demand for services in many areas highlighted by the insurance market TOM including bordereaux management, coverholder audit, sanctions screening, claims management, catastrophe modelling, data analysis, risk management, regulatory reporting and underwriter support.

In his spare time, Hugh enjoys a touch of rugby, football and cricket.
