Ed Holt

Ed’s combined role of Strategy Consultant and Director of a software company gives him a unique perspective on the ‘art of the possible’ in how technology can support new business models in UK Financial Services.

With over 20 years in software development and 10 years in consulting for Life and Pensions, he brings a blend of skills and experience (Strategy, Proposition, Go-to-Market and Technology Delivery) to the corporate market.

Clients have included Prudential, Fidelity, AXA, Mercer, Barclays and Friends Life, whilst assignments ranged from business strategy to proposition development to financial business cases and Auto-Enrolment Hub delivery.

His primary objective is “to create the technology infrastructure for new business models in the UK Life and Pensions industry” – something he admits to both becoming something of a hobby as well as a lifelong task!
