Guy Carpenter creates APAC catastrophe advisory group

Guy Carpenter & Company has launched its Asia Pacific Catastrophe Advisory Group, which will be led by Jeremy Waite (pictured).

According to the global risk and reinsurance broker, the new group will provide its clients direct access to its significant expertise and capabilities in managing catastrophe risk. These include including in-house analytics experts, scientific partners, and public-sector specialists. The group will work closely with companies across the Asia-Pacific region to manage these exposures, as well as help address the growing impact of climate change.

Waite will retain his role as head of Guy Carpenter’s property treaty broking team for Australia and New Zealand. He has over 25 years’ experience in re/insurance in various roles, including actuarial, underwriting, broking and catastrophe modelling in both the UK and Australia.

“In responding to the escalating risks stemming from climate change and the increasing demands of both regulators and stakeholders, our new Asia Pacific Catastrophe Advisory Group will provide the depth and breadth of expertise needed to help clients become more resilient against the changing nature of risks,” said Tony Gallagher, CEO of Asia-Pacific, Guy Carpenter.
