MS Amlin bolsters Singapore team with raft of new hires

MS Amlin Underwriting Ltd has welcomed six new hires to its Singapore operation, MS Amlin Asia Pacific (MS AAP), boosting its underwriting, claims and office capabilities.

Four of the hires are part of the reinsurance division, one is with the political violence, trade credit and political risks team, and one is in an administration role.

Alex Wang joined the reinsurance division as a senior underwriter, having previously been client manager and treaty underwriter at SCOR in Paris. Wang and the other new members of the reinsurance division will report to William Ho, head of reinsurance underwriting and CEO.

Joining Wang are assistant underwriters Jason Tan and Srinath Iyer. Tan was most recently a broker at Aon Reinsurance Solutions Malaysia, while Iyer was previously manager of reinsurance at International Reinsurance and Insurance Consultancy and Broking Services in Mumbai.

Kris Gwee, who was appointed senior claims adjuster, joined from GrabInsure, where she was manager of insurance operations. Gwee is a qualified lawyer whose career has spanned both claims and operations. MS AAP said the hiring reflects its commitment to recruiting and nurturing hybrid talent to support long-term business growth.

Joash Tan joined the political violence, trade credit and political risks team as underwriting assistant. Tan was previously a credit analyst at MUFG Bank and will report to Patrick Allen.

Karin Toh was appointed office manager, a newly formed role which will be integral to supporting the expansion of operations in Asia, the company said. She is also an executive assistant to Will Ho, CEO of MS AAP. Toh joined the company from Firmus Capital, where she was client servicing manager. She previously held office manager and administrative positions at Rockworth Capital Partners and Raffles Quay Asset Management.

“I’m delighted to be welcoming so many talented individuals to our business,” Ho said “Each of our new hires brings dedicated experience and new perspectives that support our growth ambitions and underlines our commitment to the Asian market. As we continue to strengthen our value proposition in the region, building out our teams with the highest calibre of talent remains a key priority for us to continue to provide best-in-class services for our clients and their evolving needs.”
