Leading specialist insurer Beazley continues to grow its Singapore office and local product offerings in response to rising appetite for cover written locally in Asia. The company today announced the addition of new underwriters in the marine, cargo, political risks and specialty lines product areas...



Beazley currently offers a full range of construction and engineering, large commercial property, political risks, contingency, treaty, marine, terrorism and specialty lines products locally in Singapore. 


  • Kwang Hoon Song joins Beazley to head up its marine hull, war and builder's risks business in Asia Pacific. Song has worked in the industry as both an underwriter and a broker since 2001. Immediately prior to Beazley, he was a marine hull underwriter with XL Catlin in Singapore. 


  • Said Khan is now Beazley's Asia regional head of cargo. He has extensive experience in underwriting cargo risks, most recently as Head of Cargo Asia at Amlin Singapore.  


  • Teck Siong Ng will work with Gordon Lam, underwriting manager for Beazley Singapore in the continued development of Beazley's specialty lines business in the region, including Professional Indemnity, D&O and Crime. He joins Beazley from the Asia Capital Reinsurance Group PTE Ltd, where he was senior underwriter for Casualty and Financial Lines.


  • Andrew Page, political violence underwriter, joins the Asia Pacific team from Beazley's London office where he has been part of its Political Risks & Contingency team since 2011.  


"2016 marks the 10th anniversary of Beazley opening its office in Singapore and our product offerings in the Asia Pacific region are quickly increasing," said Gavin Hayes, Head of Asia Pacific at Beazley. "The experience and calibre of Kwang Hoon, Said, Teck and Andrew adds significant additional depth and breadth of talent to our Singapore hub to help us meet the increasing demand from local clients for a broader range of bespoke products."
