Charles Taylor has appointed Matthew John Lim (pictured) as Asia Practice lead for business interruption and financial lines for its adjusting business based in Singapore.
Lim brings over 10 years’ experience in business interruption risk, forensic investigations, and corporate restructuring. Having worked in Singapore, the UK and, most recently, in Australia, he has developed and maintained a good network across these markets, a statement from the company said.
Before joining Charles Taylor, Lim was a consultant with a large broker in Australia. During his tenure, he was directly involved in the preparation and management of several high-value and complex property and business interruption energy claims, such as coal generation, wind farms and gas generation. According to the company, he provided complex quantitative assessments and conducted multiple scenario testing to determine claimable costs. Aside from energy claims, Lim has also worked with clients from the hospitality and manufacturing industry.
Lim has also handled numerous fraud claims relating to the misappropriation of funds, conflicts of interest, and bribery and corruption.
“Matthew has impressive insurance experience within major markets and an outstanding personality, focused on relationship management,” said Wee Loon Yong, CEO property & casualty, Asia at Charles Taylor. “He is a great cultural fit to our organization. We look forward to the future with him, to further support our clients through Charles Taylor’s expansion plan in the region, especially within the property and casualty sector.”
