ArgoGlobal bolsters Asia A&H teamMay 15 2019 by InsuranceAsia News Staff
ArgoGlobal has appointed Zachary Tan as an accident and health underwriter; he most recently had the same role at Tokio Marine Kiln.
Starting this week, Tan is based in Singapore and reports to Michael Scala, chief underwriting officer, Asia Pacific.
“With a strong team in place both at Lloyd’s and in Singapore, ArgoGlobal is determined to further develop a profitable and sustainable A&H portfolio across Asia Pacific and the Middle East,” said Scala. “[Tan’s] proven expertise in the region’s A&H market will support Argo’s long-term, strategic interests.”
Tan brings nearly 20 years of insurance experience to ArgoGlobal, including at Chubb (called Ace at the time), Prudential, Tokio Marine Kiln, Starr International and NGA Benefits Singapore.
ArgoGlobal Asia Pacific is based in the Lloyd’s hub at Capita Green in Singapore, and has been boosting its team in the region over the last six months.
In March, Alfredo Alonso joined from RSA as chief underwriting officer for Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Alonso reports to Matt Harris, ArgoGlobal’s group head of international operations.
Meanwhile, Argo has also recently become a member and network partner of GBN, worldwide insurance network of leading reinsurers, insurers, independent brokers and specialty suppliers, which operates in more than 140 countries.
