Appointment of industry veteran Leow expands HDI Global's presence in the region.

HDI Global SE Singapore (HDI) has marked its expansion into the accident & health market in Asia with the appointment of Lisa Leow as Underwriting Manager.

Silton expressed optimism about Leow’s appointment, commenting, “I am delighted to welcome Lisa to HDI, with her proven track record and capabilities, she will be invaluable to the business as we enter the Asian Accident & Health market.”

McDowell added, “With Lisa we have gained a proven expert to position HDI Global as a reliable partner in the Accident & Health sector in Asia.”

Commenting on her new role, Leow highlighted the opportunity to extend HDI’s market influence as a key factor. “HDI has a strong and growing reputation in Asia and I’m looking forward to bringing new opportunities to the business as we grow our Accident & Health market footprint in the region.”

The addition of accident & health complements HDI’s portfolio in Asia, which spans property, casualty, engineering, marine & cargo, power & energy, and political & credit risk lines of business.
