New Zealand’s largest locally owned life insurer, Fidelity Life, has appointed Anita Los’e to lead and manage Fidelity Life’s growing Group Insurance portfolio.

In her role as Head of Group Insurance, Anita will be responsible for fostering key corporate relationships and leading a high performing, cross functional team to deliver outstanding experiences for Fidelity Life’s group insurance employees and employers.

With more than 18 years’ experience in the financial services sector here and in Australia, Anita brings with her a comprehensive understanding of the insurance industry, having worked in claims, dispute resolution, broking, employee benefit consulting and compliance.

In her most recent role as Aon’s National Manager Employee Benefits, where she spent the last five years, her portfolio included 400 corporate clients and managing a team of 14 broking staff.  

Fidelity Life Chief Sales and Service Officer, Bronwyn Kirwan, says she’s delighted to be welcoming someone of Anita’s calibre and looks forward to the leadership she’ll bring to the company.

“Anita is very highly regarded in the industry and a strategic thinker. With a strong record of commercial and operational execution, I have no doubt she’ll help drive Fidelity Life’s Group portfolio to new heights.

“The Head of Group Insurance is an increasingly important role for us. Group insurance schemes are more relevant than ever as businesses grapple with the talent shortage and are looking at their employee value propositions, including benefits.

“With Anita’s broad industry experience and knowledge, she’ll bring a holistic view and will be integral to the wider business as we continue with our transformation strategy and work to help more New Zealanders get protected.”

Prior to her most recent role with Aon, Anita worked at Marsh as Compliance Officer and at Mercer as Employee Benefits Consultant, among other insurance-related roles.

Anita will join the Fidelity Life team as Head of Group Insurance from 19th September 2022.
