  • Jason Potter announced as new IFB Head of Investigations

The Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) is pleased to announce that Jason Potter has joined the Bureau as the new Head of Investigations.

Starting on 21 March, Jason has assumed responsibility for the investigations team which sits at the heart of the IFB. Through developing networks, liaising with law enforcement agencies and managing investigations the team is able to bring insurance fraudsters to justice. The team is currently investigating over 135 operations in the UK, with a value of approximately £105m.

Jason brings experience from managing fraud investigations with insurers, setting up counter strategies within his time at Swinton, before joining NFUM in an application fraud focused role. Jason’s years of knowledge across a broad range of product lines, spanning both policy and claims fraud, will be an asset to the IFB.

Ben Fletcher, IFB Director said, “I’m delighted to welcome Jason to the IFB team as our new Head of Investigations. I am sure that the wealth of knowledge and experience he is bringing to the IFB will ensure the continued success of the investigations team in tackling insurance fraud and bringing fraudsters to justice.”

Jason Potter, the new Head of Investigations at the IFB said, “The IFB is leading the fight against insurance fraudsters and I have admired and supported their work since they were founded in 2006 so it is real honour to be asked to head up the investigations team. It is an exciting time for the IFB with their strategy implementation during 2016 and I’m looking forward to starting to work with the team to support the industry’s collective fight against insurance fraud.”
