PwC is pleased to announce that Carlos Montalvo Rebuelta, one of Europe’s leading insurance regulators, has joined its global insurance regulatory practice.  Based in Spain, Carlos will play a leading role supporting PwC’s EMEA and global clients in managing the many regulatory changes they face.

Previously Carlos was the Executive Director at the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) where he was appointed to this role in 2011.  Prior to this role Carlos was Secretary General for CEIOPS (the precursor to EIOPA) and an insurance supervisor at the Spanish insurance regulator.

Carlos is a qualified lawyer and Chartered Accountant and also an invited professor to several universities.

Carlos has exceptional insurance regulatory experience from his time building Solvency II within CEIOPS and EIOPA as well as deep international experience through his negotiations and dialogue with regulators around the world.

Stephen O’Hearn, Global Insurance leader at PwC, commented:

“I am thrilled that Carlos is joining our team. Carlos’s deep expertise and broad perspectives will be of huge benefit to our global clients and practice.  PwC is excited by the prospect of working closely with Carlos over the coming years in what continues to be a challenging regulatory environment.”

Carlos Montalvo Rebuelta, said:

“I am delighted to be joining PwC, not least because of the huge strength of their insurance client base, but also because of the opportunities that exist for insurers to manage the many regulatory demands more effectively.  We share the common belief that there is much to be done to improve the communication and understanding between regulators and the industry.  I aim to help change that.”
