Lau Siew Luang, Senior Technical Assistant

31 May 2016

How did I get here? A friend attended a job interview and she shared with me of this new reinsurance company setting up a branch in Singapore. Curious and eager for a challenge, I submitted my application and was successful in joining this operation as Underwriting Assistant in 2009 when Validus Re was setting up the branch office in Singapore. I enjoyed being part of the team to establish and document the work processes, and set up the filing and documentation system for the branch.

What am I doing now? In 2013, I became the Senior Technical Assistant. I support the underwriters in all aspects of their work. Another of my function is monitoring claims developments for the branch in conjunction with the Claims Department in Bermuda, and I actively follow up on open claims with brokers and cedents, routine but nevertheless important tasks.
