 // . //  Our People //  Robert Bailey

Based in London, Rob is a Partner in Oliver Wyman’s Insurance And Asset Management Practice, where he specializes in climate and sustainability. He brings over twenty years of professional experience to the role, having worked with numerous financial institutions, corporations, governments, and international organizations on climate change and sustainable development issues. He supports clients on a variety of topics including sustainability strategy, net zero, energy transition strategy and nature.

Insurers have a unique role to play in addressing climate change. As both investors and de-riskers of investment, they can help steer the transition to a net-zero economy, and as providers of insurance, they can help build resilience to climate impacts.

Prior to rejoining Oliver Wyman, Rob was Director of Climate & Sustainability at Marsh McLennan, and Director of the Energy, Environment and Resources Department at Chatham House; before that he was responsible for climate change at a major international NGO.

Rob is a frequent public speaker, has published widely on climate and sustainable development, and has held numerous advisory positions. He was a lead author for the United Nation’s Sixth Global Environment Outlook, a specialist adviser to the UK International Development Committee, and sits on the board of the Centre for Disaster Protection and the advisory committee of the Mercer Sustainable Opportunities Fund.

Rob has a BA in natural sciences from Cambridge University and an MSc in development from the London School of Economics.
