Co-organised by the SMF and the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA), the second seminar of the Maritime Knowledge Shipping Sessions was held on 14 August 2015, at the STI Auditorium of Capital Tower.
Ms Alecia Quah, Principal Analyst of IHS Economics & Country Risk (Asia) and Mr Fabian Conderanne, Chief Executive Officer of Coface Singapore were invited as guest speakers for this seminar. Ms Quah specialises in assessing the political, security and regulatory risks across countries in Asia, and her presentation on The Maritime Security Landscape gave the audience a better understanding on the security issues surrounding the maritime sphere. Mr Conderanne then touched on the trade and political risk insurance, describing the range of existing insurance covers available in the market through practical examples, as well as the typology of existing clients in Singapore.
A Q&A session followed thereafter with Mr Jonathan Ranger (Chief Executive Officer of Watkins Syndicate and GIA Property & Marine Committee Member) moderating the session.
