Azure Risk has launched its Hong Kong operations with the appointment of Anmol Sawlani as director.

Sawlani will bring with him a team of experienced professionals who will provide wide-ranging multi-line insurance and technology expertise to drive Azure Risk’s agile digital transport and logistics insurance platform, Catalyst.

With over 15 years of insurance experience, Sawlani was most recently director and chief executive of System (Far East) Insurance Brokers Ltd. (SFE). He began his insurance career in Hong Kong with Metropolitan Life Insurance.

According to Azure Risk, Sawlani’s understanding of customer preferences, combined with his claims management experience, complements the firm’s digital offerings – whether individual products or packaged solutions – as it launches its operations in Hong Kong.

Azure Risk is a digital insurance broking startup that provides marine, transport and logistics insurance, catering mostly to independent freight forwarders worldwide.  It is a member of +8 Partners, an alliance of innovative insurance businesses.

“Anmol is one of the most liked and respected professionals in the Hong Kong market, and I have no doubt that his appointment to Azure will propel this business to new heights,” said Philip Bilney, founder of +8 Partners.

Sawlani added: “We’re excited to be a part of an ecosystem that embraces digital transformation, and I look forward to delivering the scope and quality of products that the evolving cargo and logistics marketplace requires.”
