Miller has hired Farris Mellor to join its Credit and Political Risks Insurance (“CPRI”) team in London. Having worked for some of the world’s largest financial services companies, Farris brings with him excellent knowledge of the banking sector and the insurance solutions available for financial institutions. At Miller, Farris will be helping financial institution clients access tailored, effective CPRI solutions, supporting their growth goals and providing essential protection for when challenges present themselves.

Whilst a Director at Mizuho Bank, Farris was responsible for loans sales and unfunded risk distribution, providing him with a unique insight into the most effective ways in which banks can adopt CPRI solutions – insight that Miller’s clients will now be able to benefit from.

Ben Gibbons, Head of CPRI (London) at Miller, commented: “Farris’ in-depth knowledge of the needs of banking clients makes him an exciting addition to the team at Miller. Clients will benefit from his understanding of how CPRI solutions can be made to work for them and how banks can adopt best practice. Farris has already demonstrated his ability to transfer the skills and knowledge gained whilst working in banking to the insurance sector, and his hiring forms part of our team’s commitment to providing financial institution clients with best in class service.”

Prior to joining Miller, Farris spent time working on the Primary Bond Syndicate desk at Daiwa SMBC, and then in Loan Syndications at Mizuho Bank, where he spent 11 years working in EMEA Loan Sales. Most recently, he was working as a Credit and Political Risk broker at Price Forbes & Partners.
