Beazley appoints Asia Pacific M&A underwriterNovember 21 2019 by Andrew Tjaardstra
Beazley has appointed Jade Cummings to underwrite risks associated with mergers & acquisitions (M&A) across Asia Pacific.
Based in Beazley’s Singapore office, she joins the global M&A team which includes acquisitive corporations, private equity funds, corporate spin-offs, asset sales or purchases, and refinancing transactions.
Cummings (pictured) joins Beazley from tech player McAfee, where she was legal counsel. She joined the firm as a secondee before becoming the lead legal counsel responsible for the South East Asia region; she has previously worked at the law firm Anthony Harper before relocating to Singapore.
Tim Allen, Beazley’s global head of the M&A team, said: “[Cummings] brings great experience from a leading tech company and having worked as a lawyer and M&A practitioner across the south east Asian and Australasian markets. Appetite for M&A insurance across Asia Pacific remains strong.”
