Neil Rolfe Partner, Financial Services
A senior finance professional with experience of running tax and finance M&A. Neil trained at PwC and EY, leaving as an Associate Partner before moving into industry as Life division Head of Tax with Swiss Re and as Head of Tax of their spin off closed life insurer.
Neil is an experienced technical tax advisor but also a developer of commercial solutions that work from a tax perspective.
Outside of tax he was the CFO of one of the three Swiss Re insurance vehicles regulated by FINMA and was fully responsible for that entity in the negotiation of reinsurance transactions, authorising pricing, quarterly finance compliance across US GAAP, Swiss GAAP, and IFRS.
Working across the table from vendors for numerous M&A transactions leading on finance and tax, having CFO responsibility in front of external Board members for a FINMA regulated insurer, and being an employer of tax advisers as a Head of Tax has given Neil a huge advantage in his professional advisory role to get closer to the businesses and people he will be working with at Mazars.
