Antares Asia, a part of the Qatar Insurance Group, has appointed industry veteran and former Chaucer executive Ching Ching Long as marine senior underwriter effective immediately.
In her new role, Long will be responsible for developing Antares Asia’s marine treaty and facultative portfolio for cargo, hull, marine liability and terrorism.
Long will be reporting to Li Shan Yeo, Antares Asia chief executive officer.
Yeo said the company is recruiting talents like Long to sustain the rapid development of Antares Asia, which joined Lloyd's Asia platform in Singapore last year.
“Maintaining this growth trajectory requires us to continue to bring in highly talented underwriters, to complement the expert team we have assembled, who have the drive, contacts and service driven focus that will set us apart and allow our business to continue to flourish,” Yeo said.
“Ching Ching is an exceptional marine underwriter who has proven her ability to develop business in territories across Asia. I am very pleased to welcome her to the team and am certain that our marine treaty and facultative offerings will quickly become a success under her management,” she added.
Ling has over 10 years of marine underwriting experience and has worked with major players in the Asia Pacific region.
Most recently, Ling served as deputy class underwriter at Chaucer Syndicate 1084 Singapore where she was responsible for the development of the marine treaty and facultative business in Asia.
Long also worked as head of marine at AIG
Singapore and held senior positions at Swiss Re Malaysia and AIG
