Lockton launches APAC Transactional Risk division

Independent insurance broker Lockton has launched a Asia Pacific (APAC) Transactional Risks Division with two senior appointments – Will Seccombe as Business Leader based in Hong Kong, and Mindy Ng as Vice President based in Singapore.

Seccombe and Ng both arrive to Lockton from Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT). Seccombe, a 30-year veteran in the insurance sector, was most recently Managing Director of JLT Mergers and Acquisitions Group in Asia. Overall, he has 10 years’ experience leading insurance teams in the APAC region, as well as managerial roles in Japan and South Korea.
Ng’s was most recently working with JLT in Singapore, and prior to that worked with major legal and financial services firms. They will both be joined by Julianna Yong, currently based in Lockton Singapore. Julianna has several years of private legal practice experience, both in Singapore and internationally.
The new dedicated APAC transactional risk team will be complemented and supported by Lockton’s transactional risk teams based in New York, London and Oslo, providing clients and the M&A community in the APAC region and internationally with a global solution for transactional-related risks. The team will work with clients on a number of products and services including Representations & Warranties insurance, tax liability and deal-specific risk management, and financial institutions insurance.
The creation of this new business unit is the next step in Lockton’s strong growth plans within the APAC region. Transactional risk will help the business increase its geographic footprint and will build on its existing presence in the region by adding additional specialist capabilities.
