Global insurance and reinsurance broker Lockton has launched a new Asia Pacific (APAC) Transactional Risks Division, and has appointed Will Seccombe as Business Leader based in Hong Kong, and Mindy Ng as Vice President, based in Singapore.
Seccombe brings 30 years of experience in the insurance sector to Lockton, having joined from rival broker JLT, where he most recently served as Managing Director of JLT Mergers and Acquisitions Group in Asia.
He has more than a decade of experience in leading insurance teams in the APAC region, and has also held managerial roles in Japan and South Korea.
Ng also joins the brokerage from JLT, most recently serving the firm in Singapore. Prior to JLT in Singapore, she worked for major legal and financial services firms.
Joining Seccombe and Ng as part of Lockton’s new APAC Transactional Risks Division, is Julianna Yong, currently based in Lockton Singapore. She brings several years of private legal practice to the division, both in Singapore and internationally.
According to an announcement, the new APAC Transactional Risks Division will be complemented and supported by the broker’s transactional risk teams based in New York, London, and Oslo.
Lockton explains that the establishment of this unit is the next logical step in its plans for growth across the APAC region, with transactional risks expected to help the company expand its geographical footprint and bolster its existing presence in the region.
