August 16 2018 by InsuranceAsia News Staff

Moody’s Analytics has made a series of appointments in its Hong Kong office, expanding the team focused on insurance modelling and analytics across Asia Pacific.

Andrew Waters will move from the London office to lead market strategy and business expansion in the region as the company seeks to expand its ability to support insurers with challenges such as IFRS 17, ALM, and risk-based capital regimes.

“We look forward to helping them better understand and manage their risk and actuarial activities,” said Waters.

Shar Choi will focus on actuarial modelling solutions in the region. She joins from PwC Boston, where she led its modelling team for life actuarial services. In her new role, Choi will guide insurers on how modelling can be done more effectively and efficiently.

Fred Pan will lead actuarial client support activities in the Asia-Pacific region. He moves from the Moody’s Analytics Toronto office.

Ramla Kacem, who is moving from the Singapore office, will engage with insurers on Moody’s Analytics’ IFRS 17 proposition.

“We are committed to helping insurers in the Asia-Pacific region improve their risk management strategy and execution,” said Andy Frepp, general manager for enterprise risk solutions at Moody’s Analytics. “These appointments will enable us to serve more clients in the region with advanced actuarial modelling and analytics solutions and support.”
