Singapore-based Asia Capital Re, the Asia-focussed reinsurer and subsidiary of ACR Capital Holdings, has appointed Ming Hon Chew to lead its credit and surety team.

Chew joined Asia Capital Re in August 2010, bringing with him 19 years of financial services experience in roles spanning the insurance, auditing and securities industries. “In his [new] role, Chew leads Asia Capital’s team in ensuring that the evolving business needs of clients are well served, providing strong continuity of the company’s client-centric service as well as further developing the products that will keep our partners ahead in today’s dynamic risk landscape,” a spokesperson tells GTR.

Chew replaces former head of credit and surety Richard Chu, who leaves the company at the end of 2014, GTR can confirm.
