Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has signed an advisory agreement with Zurich Financial Services to provide guidance on international politics.
Blair, who recently joined JP Morgan as an adviser for £2.5m a year, will advise Zurich chief executive officer James Schiro and provide general guidance on developments and trends in international politics.
He will advise and collaborate with Zurich on its climate initiative and work closely with its new climate change advisory council.
Blair says: “There is a consensus now that the challenge of climate change is real and what we need are the policy solutions to turn that concern into action. That is why Zurich’s work to look at how business, in particular the insurance sector, can play its part is so crucial.”
