Our Leadership

Our distinct way of studying the world combines a systematic approach to learning with an idea meritocracy where the best ideas win out, resulting in the deepest possible understanding of global markets and economies. Our executive team brings a breadth of industry experience, providing expert leadership for the R8RISK team and long-term value for our clients.

R8RISK was founded and is led by Ali M Tarbhai, with an in-depth and long working history within the Financial Services, Insurance, and Risk Management industries and along with a strong technical IT background, Ali is building R8RISK from a vision to create a more resilient world – one that serves to enable and build humanity based on real trust and integrity as opposed to the current regime most of the world appear to be entrapped in. A world of inequality, misinformation and cannibalistic corporatism.

A native of Canada, Ali is fluent in English and French, he also possesses working proficiencies in Spanish, Creole, Hindi, and Guajarati. His prior work history includes Swiss Re, Birkett-Hassard Insurance Brokers, Aviva Insurance Company, Intact Insurance, TD Canada Trust and various other organizations both small and large.

Ali has held multiple Insurance licenses always in good standing; RIBO (Registered Insurance Broker of Ontario) and AIC (Alberta Insurance Council) licences, as some of the successfully achieved licences. Furthermore, Ali is a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) recognized by the Toronto Chapter of the Insurance Institute of Canada as well as a holder of the Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation and member of GRMI (Global Risk Management Institute), and ACS of LOMA.

Ali’s current focus and objective is growing R8RISK to a point where it is identified as one of the leaders in it’s space. As CEO, and lead consultant – he is taking his vision to transform an industry that has let down so many and that profits off the pain and misery of the people/groups they were originally designed to protect.

Our leadership finds it integral to keep an ongoing study of how the world works, every engagement is unique. What stays the same is our ongoing dedication and commitment to achieving great business results for our clients.
