RKH Specialty, part of the Hyperion Insurance Group, has appointed Julian Franzman as Head of Marine Cargo, Hull and Liabilities for Asia Pacific.
Franzman has over 30 years’ marine re/insurance experience and since 1997 has worked across the Asia Pacific region.
He joins from JLT Re Asia Pacific, where he was Managing Director of Marine and Aviation.
Franzman will be based in Singapore once his contractual obligations to JLT Re have been discharged.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Julian. The skills, knowledge and experience he brings with him adds to our existing expertise and will accelerate our plans to develop our offering, and not only in Asia Pacific,” said Stuart Beatty, Chief Executive Officer of RKH Specialty Asia Pacific.
“As our business around the world is organised around product lines, rather than geographical areas, we always access our colleagues’ expertise and markets around the world to ensure we deliver our clients the best that global markets have to offer.”
“The cross-border collaboration it encourages creates innovation in terms of product and service delivery.”
RKH Specialty’s business in the region is currently focused around its property, power, energy, construction and financial risks’ expertise in Singapore.
The company says Franzman’s appointment will bring together RKH Specialty in Singapore and its specialist Hong Kong-based marine broker FP Marine to grow the marine operation in Asia Pacific.
