June 30 2020 by Andrew Tjaardstra

Clarence Ting, former P&C claims manager with the business management team at Swiss Re Asia, has left the reinsurer after approximately four years (according to LinkedIn) to join Aon.

Starting this month, he has become industries specialty claims leader for the global broker and will still be based in Singapore.

Ting (pictured), a well known member of the Singapore claims community, will work alongside John Fogg, Aon’s claims leader for the Asia financial services and professions group, and will report to Peter Hulyer, Aon’s head of industry specialties – Asia, commercial risk solutions.

An Aon spokesperson commented: “[Ting’s] addition to Aon’s market leading regional claims team further enhances our claims value proposition and demonstrates Aon’s commitment to delivering best in class claims services to our clients across Asia.”

According to LinkedIn, prior to joining Swiss Re in 2016, Ting previously worked at several insurers including Liberty International Underwriters – where he was claims manager for energy property and construction –  and Axa where he was senior P&C claims executive. He is also a member of the Singapore Insurance Institute council.

Aon has a large presence across Asia and is currently undergoing a complex merger with rival Willis Towers Watson (WTW); the merger would create a regional powerhouse and will be the subject of intense regulatory scrutiny. WTW has recently been hit by a class action lawsuit in the US over the proposed sale price.
