Guy Carpenter launches APAC capital advisory group

Guy Carpenter & Company has launched its capital advisory group in Asia-Pacific, with the appointments of Michael Owen (pictured left) and Hussain Ahmad (pictured right) to lead the new operation.

According to Guy Carpenter, the new Asia-Pacific capital advisory group will help clients make informed business decisions and offers bespoke structures designed to help manage financial volatility and address capital challenges. This is amid evolving market dynamics, regulatory developments and shareholders’ return expectations that require sustainable, efficient and targeted solutions.

Owen is an enterprise risk management veteran that has been with Guy Carpenter for over 20 years. He is currently chief actuary for Asia-Pacific. Meanwhile, Ahmad, who joined Guy Carpenter in 2019 in his current role as head of structured reinsurance solutions for Asia-Pacific, has over 15 years of experience in providing technical re/insurance solutions across the region.

Both of them will retain their current roles in addition to leadership of the capital advisory group.

“The new Asia-Pacific capital advisory group has been established in response to growing demand for more efficient capital structures and strategic insights that help companies achieve their financial objectives,” said Tony Gallagher, Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific CEO. “We have brought together a strong team comprised of experts in the areas of analytics, actuarial, structured solutions and catastrophe modelling, as well as IFRS 17, to meet the capital needs of our clients and deliver the best-in-class solutions.”
