Risk insurer Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) continues to expand its capital risks team in Asia with the appointment of Serene Soo as capital risks manager.

Along with Mark Wong who joined the firm’s Singapore team in January, Soo will provide structured credit and political risk advisory and transactional services to the firm’s clients.

She will report to Matthew Strong, managing director of JLT’s capital risks business in Asia.

Strong explains that the appointments outline JLT’s focus within the Asian structured credit and political risks market.

“I am delighted to welcome Mark and Serene to the team. They bring with them considerable experience and expertise and will further strengthen our capabilities within the credit and political risks market,” Strong adds.

Over recent years JLT Asia has continued to expand in this area and now has structured credit and political risks specialists in Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Beijing and Bangkok within the Asian region.
