Hong Kong domiciled reinsurer, Peak Reinsurance Company Limited (Peak Re), has announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Franz Josef Hahn, has become a member of The Geneva Association, an international think tank for re/insurance and risk management issues.
Established in 1973, The Geneva Association is a non-profit organisation funded by its members that is based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Its stated mission is to develop and promote a wider understanding of the role and importance of re/insurance in economies and for societies around the world.
It achieves this through the development of research programmes, regular publications and the organisation of international meetings with policymakers, regulators and other key constituents.
Its membership is made up of leaders of the largest re/insurance companies worldwide, and it acts as the voice of these groups in the dialogue with international institutions.
“I am excited about supporting The Geneva Association as a member,” said Hahn. “Its distinct mission resonates well with Peak Re’s commitment to narrowing protection gaps, especially in the developing and emerging markets of Asia.”
“I look forward to offering my perspective derived from my 30 years in the region and leading one of the fastest growing global reinsurance firms,” he continued.
“The Geneva Association is an ideal platform to raise awareness among insurance leaders and key political decision-makers from around the world as well as to combine research with impact, for the benefit of the underserved and unserved segments of the population.”
