LUXEMBOURG - It is with great regret that IPE announces the very sudden death of James Ball, head of insurance and employee benefit consultants JBI Deloitte in Luxembourg.

He died as a result of a heart attack at his home in Cyprus, but will be laid to rest in Luxembourg.

Ball was long associated with the Grand Duchy where he ran financial services businesses, though latterly he was involved in providing insurance related and other advisory services. He was a judge of the annual IPE Awards.

“James will be sorely missed by us all,” said JBI Deloitte’s Gail Wilson.
