Hanne van Voorden

Head of Supervisory Practices and Operations 

Hanne van Voorden joined the IAIS Secretariat in July 2017. She is the Head of Supervisory Practices and Operations and a member of the Senior Management Team since September 2021. Prior to this role, Hanne was as a Senior Policy Advisor and during her four years with the organisation, she has coordinated multiple complex projects relating to supervisory practices, financial stability and climate risk. 

As Head of Supervisory Practices and Operations, Hanne is responsible for managing activities related to developing guidance on effective supervisory practices – particularly those related to the IAIS’ key strategic themes such as climate risk, digital innovation, cyber risk, culture and conduct and diversity, equity and inclusion. In addition, she manages the organisation’s core internal operations.

Prior to joining the IAIS, Hanne worked at the Dutch Central Bank (De Nederlandsche Bank) and held several roles in financial stability and insurance supervision.

Hanne holds a master’s degree in Economics from the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

There are several emerging and accelerating trends that impact the global insurance industry, such as climate change and digital innovation. Supervisors should have the tools to examine these trends and their potential impact on supervisory objectives like policyholder protection and financial stability. The IAIS is supporting insurance supervisors by providing a platform for information exchange and developing guidance on good supervisory practice.
