Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company (BHSI) has broken into the accident and health (A&H) market in Asia.

The insurer has appointed Phillip Brain as head of A&H in the region.

Brain joins BHSI from Chubb where he most recently served as vice president, A&H group manager, Asia Pacific.

Prior to this, he was regional vice president and group A&H manager, AIG Asia Pacific. 

“Phillip has extensive experience in all aspects of the A&H space, from product underwriting and innovation, to technology,” said Marc Breuil, president, BHSI, Asia.

“With his leadership, we look forward to establishing an A&H team that will provide employees and employers throughout Asia with meaningful tailored solutions, backed by BHSI’s service, stability and financial strength.”

BHSI will focus initially on broker-distributed group personal accident and business travel products, and will expand its suite of A&H products over time.
