Hong Kong-based insurance firm Coherent Capital Advisors has added two insurance veterans to its leadership team, following the recent appointment of ex-Manulife Asia CIO and COO John Brisco as its CEO.
The firm tapped Bob Charles as head of technical advisory, and Ben Ng as director. Charles brings 30 years of consulting actuary experience. He was most recently the CEO of CXA Group Hong Kong, where he established the business model of the technology start-up, CCA said.
Charles has also served as the Regional CEO of Towers Watson in Asia-Pacific. “I’ve had global consulting and start-up experience and benefited from them both. CCA offers the opportunity to combine these experiences with a fantastic team,” said Charles.
Meanwhile, Ng has worked at a number of Hong Kong-based insurance companies in senior actuarial and product roles. He was most recently the chief marketing officer of Chubb Life Hong Kong and also helped establish iFWD.
“CCA is unique. It combines deep experience and wide expertise in insurance with insurtech capability. The Hong Kong market is taking notice and it is a huge attraction to join at this exciting growth stage,” said Ng.
