Ace Global Markets Political Risk and Credit has hired Julian Hudson in Singapore from where he will manage the Asia Pacific region for the division.

“It has taken sometime to identify the right person but our patience has paid off and we are very excited to welcome Julian,” says Julian Edwards, head of product line, political risks and credit. “He has significant experience in the region both as an underwriter and broker. Julian is joining us with responsibility for the full range of our product offerings in the region. In particular, we anticipate that he will be able to exploit a range of structured trade opportunities as well as carving a niche in the trade credit and project finance markets. It is also exciting that he is joining us at a time when we can now not only do up to five years on private credit risk but 10 years on all political risks related perils whether investment or trade.”

Hudson was previously at Jardine Lloyd Thompson in Hong Kong, with responsibility for credit risk, political risk and terrorism broking across Asia. Before that he was a commercial underwriting manager with Euler Group in the UK.
