Mike Foxall, Head of Insurance Services at AILO Associate Member, QB Partners, was recently presented with AILO’s prestigious James Ball Award.

Noting previous winners, Mike said he was “truly humbled” and “bowled over” to receive the award.

With almost 30 years’ experience in Financial Services, Mike has spent the last 15 years as a specialist focusing on international insured tax wrapper solutions, representing providers in Isle of Man, Dublin and Luxembourg and has helped design, launch and evolve products and delivered technical and market knowledge to better understand these structures.

AILO CEO, Bob Pain, said “This is a perfect way to recognise Mike for his generous support and commitment to the industry and to thank him on behalf of everyone in the industry, including AILO Members, who have benefited from his knowledge, experience, and expertise.

Mike has developed the Proposition & Customer Outcomes Committee to be one of the most established, effective AILO Committees and under his leadership, the PCO has driven several important topics including illustrations, vulnerable customers, complaints and Consumer Duty on behalf of AILO Members and the industry as a whole. It therefore gives me great pleasure to present the James Ball Award to Mike this year.”

Congratulations! Mike Foxall, James Ball Award Winner 2023

The James Ball Award was instigated by AILO in memory of James Ball, a founder of the international industry and AILO, who died suddenly in May 2005. This annual award is made to the individual who has, in the opinion of AILO’s Members, made a significant contribution to the international and cross border life industry over the past 12 months.
