XL Catlin appoints global programme and captive head for AsiaNovember 15 2017 by InsuranceAsia News Staff
XL Catlin has appointed Shiwei Jin to global programme and captive regional director, Asia. In this new role, Jin will be responsible for driving global programme and captive business, as well as developing relationships with XL Catlin’s broker partners and clients across Asia.
Jin takes on this expanded role while continuing her position as a member of the global programme centre of excellence team and has relocated to XL Catlin’s Hong Kong office from London.
“Asia, in particular, is a growing market for the provision of global insurance programmes and clients’ needs there are changing,” said Philippe Gouraud, head of strategic client and broker management. “The latest edition of the Fortune Global 500 list shows 40% of Fortune 500 companies are based in Asia.”
Jin has more than 10 years’ experience in the insurance industry, having joined XL Catlin in 2007 in China as a regional research manager and was part of the team that established its operations in Shanghai.
She will continue reporting to Sonja Ochsenkuehn, recently appointed head of global programmes for XL Catlin, based in New York.
