UK-based Ardonagh will open a data and risk management centre in Ireland to gain insights assisting clients globally as the company continues its expansion.

The centre in Mullingar in County Westmeath will help develop tailored solutions for a range of insurance products and related services, the company says.

“Our Global Data and Risk Management Centre will focus entirely on improved outcomes for every participant in the value chain; forensically investigating our pool of data to build an improved understanding of risk, examining possible future outcomes and working with clients and insurer partners in preparation for the unknown,” CEO David Ross said.

The centre will include 60 data science and analysis roles and Ardonagh says it intends to work with the Atholone Institute of Technology to offer graduates career opportunities.

Ardonagh last year acquired Irish brokerage Arachas, and that firm’s CEO Conor Brennan led an approach to statutory agency IDA Ireland to secure Irish Government support for the data centre through investment into the initiative.

In Australia, Ardonagh acquired authorised representative network Resilium earlier this year, appointed Paul Lynam as Chairman of the group’s wider local operations and has recently established Ethos Broking Australia to look at further opportunities.
