Alex Tiah joins April Yang as Beazley continues to enhance underwriting capabilities in APAC
Specialist insurer Beazley has appointed Alex Tiah as an underwriter in its jewellery, fine art and specie (JFAS) team to support the growth of its product offering in the Asia Pacific region. Alex, who will be based in Singapore, will report into April Yang, who joined Beazley in 2019 as a JFAS underwriter in the Beazley Underwriting Division at Lloyd’s China, based in Shanghai.
Alex has over 12 years of experience in the insurance industry and comes from a strong broking background, having most recently worked at Howden Singapore as a team leader in the JFAS division. Prior to that, he held roles at Willis Towers Watson, Aviva and AIA.
Lucien Mounier, Beazley’s head of Asia Pacific, said: “The expansion of our jewellery, fine art and specie underwriting presence in Asia reflects the growth of this business line across the region. With Alex based in Singapore and April in China, we can offer even greater regional coverage and are strongly positioned to work with brokers to meet the growing demand of their clients for specialist cover.”
Simon Aitchison, head of jewellery, fine art & specie at Beazley, said: “Alex’s hire further demonstrates our ambitions to grow our underwriting capabilities in the Asia Pacific region. I welcome Alex to the team, and we look forward to working with Alex and April to deliver tailored services and specialist products supported by the expertise of our global team.”
