Cathal Rabbitte

Cathal Rabbitte, FIA is an actuary, analyst, strategist and journalist specializing in modelling coherence and the translation of developing macroeconomic themes into usable modelling insights and workable strategy. He serves as External Contributing Editor of Directional Alpha. He has over 20 years of experience in Europe, Asia and Africa, primarily in insurance and reinsurance. As a journalist he has extensive archiving and research experience as well as broad and deep knowledge of historical trends with a strong ability to put risk into cultural and historical contexts and to help articulate the limits of financial modelling to detect signals of the future and to minimize risk given economic turbulence. He has over 15 years of experience reporting and analyzing economic themes for various media. Cathal has analyzed and written extensively about corporate collapses and the near death of top global Reinsurance and Insurance Companies during the initial stage of the World Financial crisis in 2008-10. The key in those cases was incoherent modelling and poor corporate governance responses to shifting risk developments.
