Chubb has appointed Jin Lee as head of bancassurance for Asia-Pacific. In her new role, Lee’s main focus will be on the DBS-Chubb distribution partnership across the Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, and mainland China markets.
Lee will be based in Singapore and will report to Paul McNamee, regional president for Chubb in Asia-Pacific.
Currently deputy general counsel for Asia-Pacific, Lee joined Chubb in 2010 as accident & health legal counsel for Australia and New Zealand. She has practiced various aspects of insurance law for over a decade, including the structuring of complex distribution arrangements; advising on regulatory and compliance matters; dealing with regulators; acquisitions and mergers of insurance companies, and claims adjudication.
“Jin is an ideal leader for this important and challenging appointment as she played a key role in the DBS-Chubb bancassurance transaction,” McNamee commented. “She is commercially savvy and has been the lead counsel for many significant business accounts especially financial institutions throughout the region in recent years. She has the right combination of experience, business acumen and passion to drive the bancassurance strategy and vision to achieve the ambitious growth targets we have for this partnership.”
