Job Description

Senior Analyst/ Principal Consultant for Insurance in Asia

Celent is an international strategy consultancy dedicated to helping leading financial institutions create and sustain competitive advantage. We offer two primary services: research, providing members with a retained advisory service that includes access to our analysts, reports, and knowl­edge base; and strategy consulting, working with clients on specific areas related to their business, technology, and operations strategies. Celent’s target market is the world’s top financial institu­tions, encompassing banks, insurers, and securities firms, as well as firms providing services to those institutions.

Research: Celent analysts conduct research and publish reports on issues relevant to the financial services industry. This includes industry and market trends, operational issues, technology devel­opments, regulatory changes, and so on. Research reports are available exclusively to our clients on a subscription basis. Celent’s research forms part of a retained advisory service, where our cli­ents have access to our analysts, reports, and knowledge base to allow them to rapidly make more informed decisions.

Strategy Consulting: Celent analysts also work directly with our clients to address strategy issues. Our strategy consulting clients include top financial services firms as well as consultan­cies, venture capitalists, and technology vendors that serve the financial services industry. Projects we have conducted for clients have included multiple business and IT strategy advisory projects for insurers seeking new technology investments, innovation management and emerging technology workshops, strategic fit evaluations for new acquisitions, and market entry assessments for software firms.

In addition to research and consulting, Celent analysts are expected to develop a high profile and regularly speak with members of the press and present at conferences. Our analysts have been quoted extensively in virtually every leading business publication. Analysts also speak at industry conferences and roundtables and make themselves available to research clients to answer ques­tions on a variety of topics.

  • Experience in shaping the strategic agenda for technology investments in insurance at a top finan­cial institution, consulting firm, or industry-focused technology firm.
