Chubb announced the appointment of Jin Lee as the head of Bancassurance for Asia Pacific. In her new role, Lee’s primary responsibility will be to oversee the DBS Bank-Chubb partnership which spans across Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia and China.
Chubb announced in September 2017 it had entered into a 15-year distribution agreement with DBS, the largest banking group in Southeast Asia.
Lee will be based in Singapore and will report to Paul McNamee, regional president for Chubb in Asia Pacific.
Lee is currently Chubb’s deputy general counsel for Asia Pacific. She joined the company in 2010 as accident & health legal counsel for Australia and New Zealand. She has over 10 years of experience practicing various aspects of insurance law, including the structuring of complex distribution arrangements, advising on regulatory and compliance matters, dealing with regulators, acquisitions and mergers of insurance companies and claims adjudication.
“Jin is an ideal leader for this important and challenging appointment as she played a key role in the DBS-Chubb bancassurance transaction,” said McNamee. “She is commercially savvy and has been the lead counsel for many significant business accounts especially financial institutions throughout the region in recent years.”
