Astrid O’Reilly to write mergers and acquisitions insurance lines from Singapore

Corporate lawyer and former underwriter for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) business lines in Ironshore’s London office Astrid O’Reilly, will now oversee the company’s M&A insurance offerings and services throughout Asia.

Singapore branch principal officer Chen Dai said the appointment would allow Ironshore to provide a unique, local M&A insurance service in Singapore and the rest of the Asia region. He added that O’Reilly would provide “expertise and experience normally available only outside Singapore”.

Robert Brown is the global head of M&A insurance for Ironshore, which provides broker-sourced property and casualty insurance coverages. He said that the company had a growing team of professionals based in Singapore.

“Asian clients will be able to access our global M&A team to provide solutions for their acquisitions or disposals throughout the world,” he said.
