Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has opened a new office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and appointed Juerg Stoll (pictured) as its country head.

The office, which began operations on 1 March 2017, will function under a Labuan FSA reinsurance license.

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions Asia-Pacific chief executive Fred Kleiterp said Malaysia was a key focus for the group.

“We will use our large net capacity, and the financial strength of the Swiss Re Group to provide traditional and customised reinsurance solutions to corporations across several industries, including oil and gas, manufacturing, agriculture, marine, aviation and construction,” he said.

Stoll was most recently country head for Japan at Swiss Re Corporate Solutions and will report to Jonathan Rake, head South East Asia.

On his appointment, Stoll said: “I’m enthused about building a long-lasting presence in Malaysia and supporting the country’s economic growth ambitions with reliable contingent capital. I’m also excited to have the chance to further strengthen our unique brand in Malaysia.”

The insurance group said Paul Atkinson would replace Stoll as country head of Japan. The appointment is subject to regulatory approval.
