    Over a 25-year career with Willis, Margrett has specialized in client advisory and operational roles in the captive and risk financing arena, most recently as Director of the International Captive Practice. Margrett’s appointment to the Willis Global Captive Practice underscores the broker’s intention to expand its captive risk management capabilities on a global scale.

She has the knowledge and expertise to really drive improvements in operational efficiencies to support the strategic growth plan of the Global Captive Practice. We already have a deep talent pool in the business and it will be Pauline’s job to coordinate these resources and ensure they are channelled towards finding the best risk financing and captive solutions for our clients.”

The team also offers extensive global experience and capabilities to help clients set up and manage a captive, and achieve the optimal balance between risks they choose to transfer out of their business and those which they keep in-house.
