Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company (BHSI) has introduced group personal accident, corporate travel and expatriate medical insurance in Singapore and Hong Kong.

BHSI’s new corporate travel and expatriate medical insurance products combine coverage with 24/7 access to BHSI’s care and concierge services, which includes emergency medical, evacuation and repatriation assistance, medical referrals, assistance retrieving lost luggage, and worldwide concierge support.

“We are pleased to launch our first accident and health solutions in Asia, backed by BHSI’s financial strength,” said BHSI Asia head of accident and health Phillip Brain. “The BHSI care and concierge services embedded in our travel covers are indicative of the high level of service we plan to bring to this marketplace.”

These new A&H products are available in Singapore and Hong Kong and will launch in Macau in the coming weeks.

Alongside the product launches, BHSI announced two new hires.
