Hoe-Yeong’s background is in political risk consultancy, having worked as a consultant with the advisory firm Global Counsel, and as a freelance contributor for The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). Before moving to the UK, he also worked as manager of insights and intelligence for the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) for three years.
“It is a very exciting opportunity to bring my experience and knowledge from my political risk consulting background to the Airmic members,” Hoe-Yeong tells Airmic News.
“While geopolitical risks are becoming increasingly relevant, research is a keen passion of mine and the opportunity to broaden my insight by collaborating with Airmic members and partners is one I am looking forward to embrace.”
Hoe-Yeong’s first project is the annual Airmic survey, which will be published at the annual conference in Edinburgh on 8 June. Members will be receiving the survey in February and the Association is delighted to be partnering with AIG, Control Risks, KPMG, QBE and Willis Towers Watson on the piece of research.
