Group Head of Insurance

About me:

Phillip Watkins is Head of Insurance at Bolt. He joined Bolt in Feb 2021 to build out the insurance function and set the strategic direction for all insurance activity world-wide. Since his joining this has evolved from the classic corporate risk transfer proposition, aimed at balance sheet protection, to include such other areas of risk such as customer safety and affinity solutions. Prior to joining Bolt Phillip has enjoyed a varied career in insurance across a multitude of industries, from Commodities Trading to Fine Art, and worked across the aisle in the management and placement of insurance. Based in London, England, Phillip enjoys managing his sons football team, walking his dogs and when family commitments permit a ride in the great British countryside.

Over the past years many cities globally aspire and are working towards a more sustainable urban transport system. By introducing shared mobility options like e-bicycles and e-scooters, allowing ride-hailing, integrating these new modes and vehicles into public transport systems, cities hope to further reduce traffic, noise and pollution. This session will discuss how cities and mobility providers have been advancing in this transformation, review the regulatory landscape, consider safety and insurance implications, and reflect upon the latest innovations and possible future direction & solutions to accelerate the transition in the new mobility ecosystem.
