Markel expands trade credit and political risk team in Singapore

Markel International has appointed Lee Zong Wen (pictured) as assistant underwriter in its trade credit and political risk team in Singapore.

In his new role, Lee will be responsible for servicing client accounts as well as supporting the existing underwriters and senior risk analysts – Dillon Matthews and Nick Davies – as they continue to grow the firm’s trade credit and political risk book in Singapore and other Asia-Pacific markets.   

Lee joined Markel from JLT, where he was senior executive broker for the credit, political and security risks team since 2016. Prior to that, he was an executive account manager at Coface’s Singapore branch.

“Zong Wen will be a great addition to the team in Singapore and his appointment is a reflection of our running success in building on our presence in the region,” said Adrian Jones, Markel’s head of strategy for trade credit in Asia and Middle East “His previous roles at JLT and Coface have given him a solid foundation in trade credit and political risk insurance and we are confident his support to Dillon and Nick will be invaluable as the team continues to grow the book in Singapore and expand further into Asia-Pacific.”
