Press release 21 November 2022.
Altus Consulting, the specialist financial services consulting firm, has joined GRiD in order to benefit from the industry body’s insights and to ensure it is at the forefront of developments in the sector. With over 150 financial services clients, it is crucially important that Altus’ consultants have a deep understanding of the industries in which they operate to determine how technology can underpin their businesses.
Altus will particularly benefit from the opportunity to network with leading figures in the group risk protection sector and to learn about future legislative and regulatory issues within the industry.
Mark Andrews, Insurance Director, Altus Consulting said: “Altus Consulting is delighted to join GRiD. We are excited to be an active participant in shaping and influencing the market as the industry continues to evolve. As a business with consultants rich in cross-sector experience, we continually drive key industry debate agendas and the shaping of policy. We firmly believe in industry-wide collaboration and look forward to getting involved with the other members.”
Paul White, Chair of GRiD said: “I know that Altus’ focus on technology will be of interest to many of our members who are looking to increase understanding how the industry can better optimise and streamline its processes as we move forward.
“We welcome members from outside of our immediate industry as they often bring new ways of approaching issues and tackling challenges to help us promote the uptake of corporate group risk protection benefits. We look forward to knowledge sharing in both directions with Altus, our newest member.”

Group Risk Development (GRiD) is the industry body for the group risk sector, promoting the value to UK businesses of providing financial protection for their staff, enhancing their well-being and improving employee engagement. Our membership includes insurers, reinsurers, intermediaries and those operating in (or with other interests in) the UK group risk market. Together this forms a collective wealth of experience built over many years. Under the chairmanship of Paul White (head of technical, Howden Employee Benefits & Wellbeing) GRiD aims to promote group risk through a collective voice to Government, policymakers, stakeholders and employers.
GRiD works with government departments and regulators involved in legislation and regulation affecting group risk benefits, and with other organisations involved in the benefits and financial protection arenas. GRiD also seeks to enhance the industry's standing by encouraging best practice and by participating in industry-wide initiatives such as the professional qualification in group risk managed jointly with the Chartered Insurance Institute.
GRiD’s media activity aims to generate a wider awareness and understanding of group risk products and their benefits for employers and employees.
