FWD GROUP

As the Chairman of the Board of FWD Group, I am very excited about the fresh experiences that our teams have been creating in different countries and regions throughout Asia.

We have a vision to change the way people feel about insurance as a leading pan-Asian insurer. In Hong Kong and Macau, the well-developed insurance industry continues to blossom with plenty of opportunities ahead, providing an ideal environment for innovations. I am delighted to see our Hong Kong & Macau team continuously elevating customer experiences with innovative, relevant and easy-to-understand products and services.

The Hon. Ronald Arculli

Chairman, Board of FWD Group

As FWD Group CEO, I share a strong passion with my team about changing the way people feel about insurance. I work closely with our leadership team to build FWD into a strong, cohesive business across Asia achieving our unified vision to bring change to the insurance landscape.

When FWD was born, we dared to be different and set out to challenge the traditional mind set of our industry. We wanted to create a new kind of insurer with customers where they deserve to be; at the very heart of our business. We believe in making it easy for people to understand and enjoy the benefits of insurance with straightforward products that are relevant to today’s lifestyles. In Hong Kong and Macau, the FWD brand has already made great strides towards offering customers a differentiated, fresh experience of insurance, with the ethos of taking care of our customers’ worries so that they can live their life today with confidence.
