Specialist marine and energy insurer Standard Club is expanding its presence in the Asia-Pacific region with some key appointments and an enhanced suite of services. These include the launch of the Coastal & Inland class in Asia and three significant appointments in Hong Kong.

Jeremy Grose, Standard Club CEO said, “The Asia-Pacific region continues to power ahead. We are proud to be able to support its growth from our world-class marine and energy insurance platform based out of Singapore and Hong Kong offering a diverse range of products, with local decision-making authority.

“We are building on our long-standing regional presence and products by introducing our Coastal & Inland class into Asia early next year and growing existing products such as Strike and Delay, whilst developing our team and enhancing communications with members.”

In a move signalling its long-term commitment to the North Asia and Greater China markets, Standard’s current managing director for Ireland, Robert Drummond has been appointed as Group Commercial Director and will be based in Hong Kong from where he will lead the club’s commercial development in the region.

To support its business in Greater China, the club has recruited a marine surveyor and an additional underwriter to join its Hong Kong team. A key strength of Standard’s position in Asia is its partnerships with Ping An, Tokio Marine and Korea P&I Club.
