XL Catlin’s insurance operations today announced the appointment of Bonnie Chow as Senior Underwriter, Political Risk and Trade Credit for Asia Pacific. She will be based in Sydney. Commenting on Ms Chow’s appointment, Mark Houghton, Regional Head of Political Risk and Trade Credit insurance for XL Catlin in Asia Pacific said: “ We’re delighted to welcome Bonnie to the team. She brings with her a wealth of experience and technical expertise which will further strengthen our offering at a time when demand for coverage is on the rise across Asia Pacific.” Craig Langham, Chief Executive, Asia Pacific - Insurance added: “The increasing pace of globalisation has accelerated the interplay between geopolitics and economics. According to the Global Risks report published last year by the World Economic Forum, it is the first time in the report’s 10-year history that geopolitical risks are the foremost concerns for many organisations. These risks include interstate conflict, failure of national governance and state collapse or crisis. As more of our clients seek out opportunities in emerging markets, we’re seeing a greater demand from clients to protect their investments and manage their geopolitical risk. Bonnie’s appointment underscores XL Catlin’s commitment to delivering vital Trade Credit and Political Risk coverages to better serve our clients’ evolving needs in the region.” Ms Chow has over 20 years’ experience in the insurance and banking industries, specialising in complex cross border trade transactions and credit risk management.
