Hailey Ross – insurance reporter with S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Global Insurance team
Since her arrival at S&P Global in 2018, she has produced some of the first comprehensive reports on diversity in the insurance industry and has spent several years closely tracking the industry’s relationship to fossil fuels.
Hailey also published a white paper for S&P Global’s Sustainable1 that detailed the numerous risks that climate change poses to the insurance industry. The research from that paper was later cited in multiple letters to the Federal Insurance Office regarding requested feedback on climate-related issues and gaps in the supervision and regulation of insurers.
“I am a business reporter for S&P Global Market Intelligence based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. My day-to-day coverage focuses on regulatory developments in the insurance space with pieces ranging from longer features to spot news briefs. I write mostly about life insurance, stock market movement, the impact of emerging topics of interest such as cannabis and insurtech as well as some managed care. Over the course of the pandemic, my coverage has shifted to focus on ESG issues as well”.
