Vecta Management

Vecta’s three founding partners previously worked together as the core of the A&H European Management Team of a global insurance company.

Our belief is that insurance is not just about underwriting. It is about understanding customer needs, designing appropriate solutions and delivering on these promises. Each part is important but redundant without the others. Our strength as a team is we bring discrete but overlapping skill sets. This is what we believe sets us apart.
