21 November 2019

Fidelity Life, New Zealand’s largest locally owned and operated life insurer and ANZIIF Life Insurance Company of the Year, has appointed Monique Ravening as its Chief Underwriting Manager.

Monique has been acting in the role since July this year and prior to that was Underwriting Team Manager and Underwriting Professional Development Manager at the life insurer.

Monique will be responsible for Fidelity Life’s 45-strong Underwriting and New Business teams as they assess applications, offer appropriate terms and issue policies - all while working closely with the company’s adviser business partners.

Chief Operations Officer Kath Johnson says Monique is an ideal fit for the role.

“The Chief Underwriting role is key for any insurance business because they’re required to make quality decisions which achieve a balance between good commercial and customer outcomes.

“Monique’s ideally qualified given her obvious passion for underwriting as well as the great experience she’s gained during her time at Fidelity Life and in her earlier career.”

Monique will be well known to many advisers. She commenced her underwriting career in 2001 with Tower, and had roles with both Tower and AMP before she joined Fidelity Life in 2013.
