Oliver James Associates has opened a new office in Singapore, relocating its General Insurance team from Hong Kong as part of an ambitious APAC expansion plan. As well as specialising in General Insurance underwriting and actuarial, its services will include Finance, Audit, Risk, Compliance, Strategy, IT, Data Science and Cyber Security offerings to the life and general insurance sector. The team also continues to grow in financial services, and will expand into the e-commerce and technology sectors. The already established team is set to strengthen over the coming weeks with a succession of new hires.
Leading the office is Toby Weston, Director, Oliver James Associates. Toby brings a wealth of experience in the GI sector, as well as a solid background from Michael Page in London. He progressed at Oliver James Associates from researcher to consultant in just five months, and was subsequently promoted five times in four years, whilst also setting up two successful divisions – Change Management and IT.
The Singapore team will be joined by Anneliese Hambrook, who has five years’ experience in underwriting recruitment. During her time at High Finance Group, Anneliese specialised in the London and Lloyd’s underwriting markets. She’ll continue her work in this field, partnering with multinational insurers, reinsurers and brokerages to place senior underwriters and brokers.
Of the plans, Toby Weston said “This is an exciting time for our growth, as we look to build on our esteemed position in the APAC region. With Anneliese bolstering our offering, there’s every reason to expect great success”.
Jonny Plews, Board Director, Oliver James Associates APAC commented “Singapore and Hong Kong are two of the most important markets in Asia, and although we already do business there, it’s a fraction of what we can accomplish by basing Toby at the helm”.
