Swiss Re Corporate Solutions appoints Didier Bélot as Head South East Asia, effective 1 December 2017. Mr. Bélot will be responsible for building on our strong market presence to lead commercial insurance programmes with local servicing capabilities and innovative solutions. Mr. Bélot replaces Jonathan Rake who was promoted to the role of Asia Pacific CEO in July 2017.
Mr. Bélot joined Swiss Re Group in 2008 and has held roles in the US, China and Europe. His most recent post was leading the Innovative Risk Solutions team in Asia Pacific. This four-year tenure generated valuable client and structuring experience relevant to this region.
"Didier's experience in the region and on executing tailored, multi-line solutions for domestic and international clients will be a great asset, particularly as the insurance market evolves through economic, technological and regulatory changes," states Mr. Rake. "His appointment adds impetus to our efforts in delivering commercial insurance solutions and risk management services to a diverse local client base."
Swiss Re Corporate Solutions' local teams based in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur offer a wide range of solutions across property, casualty and specialty insurance lines, as well as providing innovative solutions to clients based in South East Asia.
Mr. Bélot said, "This is an exciting time to lead our South East Asia team and I look forward to leveraging the strength of Swiss Re and delivering meaningful solutions to corporate clients. I am eager to work with our clients to help generate added value to their businesses and build resilience through our team of claims, risk engineering and underwriting specialists."
Mr. Bélot holds a Master of Engineering from Ecole Centrale and a Masters in Management from HEC Paris. He will continue to be based in Singapore.
The most recent data published by the National Violent Death Reporting System identifies that, in 2015, 83 suicides occurred in medical facilities. According to the CDC, the suicide rate in the US has increased more than 25% from 1999 to 2016 and 54% of those who died by suicide in that period did not suffer from a mental health condition. They report that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, taking more than 40,000 lives a year. We are aware that most inpatient suicides are the result of hanging, most commonly using a door or its handle or hinge; a head, handle, bar or door in the shower; a ceiling or sink pipe; or another type of fixture as the ligature fixation point. Join us to hear from the team at Garden City Hospital to learn about their journey with identifying and monitoring patients at risk for suicide and removing the means to accomplish suicide in the physical environment.Learn more
