AXA XL has promoted Olivia Shing (pictured) to the role of head of international casualty, UK & Lloyd’s.
As head of international casualty, Shing will be responsible for leading the international casualty team in the UK. She will also aid in the development and execution of the company’s regional underwriting strategy and ensure AXA XL’s profitability, a release said. Shing will also work with internal stakeholders and brokers to support the unit’s underwriting and marketing strategies.
Shing has over 20 years of experience in senior leadership across client servicing, distribution, and operational roles in the UK and Asia. She most recently held the position of head of underwriting management, UK & Lloyd’s at AXA XL, and has been in positions of increasing importance since joining the company in 2014.
“The casualty market is undergoing transformation through the emergence of risks related to social inflation, changing work patterns and economic uncertainty,” said AXA XL CUO of retail P&C – UK & Lloyd’s Anish Jadav. It was noted that AXA XL believes in adding “further strong leadership to [its] market-leading casualty practice” to best support clients. He also said that Shing’s extensive experience will “help her to provide the vision and leadership required so that [the company] can continue to drive market engagement and innovation in order to make [its] products and services even more relevant for [its] clients.”
Earlier this week, AXA XL made two key appointments in its marine and energy teams, naming Paul Rothery as global CUO, marine liability & ports, and Mark Appleton as head of energy liability, UK & Lloyd’s.
