Dame Inga Beale
Inga Beale DBE is a British business leader with over three decades of experience in global financial services. She was awarded a Damehood in the 2017 New Year Honours for services to the economy and for her contributions to driving the inclusion agenda for women and the LGBT community.
Most recently Inga led Lloyd’s of London, the 330-year-old global insurance and reinsurance market. During her five year tenure, Inga was responsible for accelerating Lloyd’s modernisation, embedding an innovation culture with the opening of the Lloyd’s Innovation Lab in the heart of the market, expanding the market’s global access across new, high-growth markets including China, Dubai, and India, and delivering Lloyd’s strongest capital position ever after paying out on the major US hurricanes in 2017.
As the first female Chief Executive of Lloyd’s, Inga also played a critical role in advancing diversity and inclusion initiatives across the global insurance sector, including the Dive In Festival – the only sector-wide diversity and inclusion festival in the world.
