Hiking, Swimming and Travelling


Currently in Hong Kong, I am interested in analysing insured risks and P&C insurance companies’ portfolios, assisting to the distribution of risks and the quotation. My last three years experience has deepen my knowledge about the Chinese economy and quoting in the insurance and reinsurance industry. I am available immediately.


I have a Master in Insurance and Risk Management. I have worked in the insurance and reinsurance industries.

I am flexible and can adapt to new environments: I have worked and lived in different countries and industries. I am a hard-working person and a fast learner.

I am also organized and able to handle multi-tasks (for instance, market researh, find potential clients, organized seminar and meetings between French and Chinese companies when I worked for the French Trade Commission).

I have a strong inter-personal, communication and analytical skills, since I introduce French firms to Chinese ones, collect and analyse information, quote enquiries and negotiate with parties.
