Assistant Manager , The Lion Group, HQ, Office Tower
 

I have been with the Lion Group for over 6 years, in the Insurance Division: Lion Insurance Company Limited (LICL), which acts as the Captive Insurance Company for Lion Group of companies. My responsibilities cover the Group companies’ annual insurance renewal securing the most reasonable terms and rates, attending site inspections with independent surveyors, and communicating with operating companies to keep abreast with any new project or expansion that would require new insurance placement or reinsurance. 

Lion Group is a well-diversified company, thus it allows tremendous opportunities for me to explore and learn from each unique business operation both locally and internationally and risk exposures which need to be insured. I also value the experience of dealing with underwriters which can be very challenging when negotiating existing rates and deductibles for the Group. Besides this, the Group also cares for the development of its employees by offering both internal and external training. I am very fortunate to have attended courses overseas for instance, I have attended courses conducted by The Chartered Insurance Institute in London as well as by Singapore Insurance Institute in Singapore. 

In spite of the challenges of dealing with tough underwriters and the varied and complicated businesses in the Group, my work has been made more pleasant with the continuous support and coaching from my General Manager who is always willing to share his technical and underwriting knowledge. Other colleagues in the Group are also very friendly and helpful. I learn a lot from them. With regards to my career development, I am grateful for the exposure and experience that I am gaining here in the Group which I will not get if I were to be in a single-industry organisation.

The Lion Group is also a caring company with its charitable projects carried out by Lion-Parkson Foundation and Lion Group Medical Assistance Fund to help those that are in need.
