P&I insurer Skuld has opened the doors of its new office in Tokyo.

Skuld is targeting growth in Japan with new office in Tokyo which opened on 15 August.

The office is headed up by Jinsung Son, Senior Vice President of Skuld Japan, who spent 15 years with the Japan P&I Club prior to joining Skuld in 2020.

Son is joined by Takehiko, Assistant Vice President, Claims and Underwriting; Luigi Tajimia, Assistant Vice President, Claims and Underwriting; and Akinao Watabe, Assistant Vice President, Accounting and Compliance Officer.

The P&I Club said that having a physical presence in Japan would bring it closer to members and clients and strengthen its service offering in the country.

In an earlier announcement Son said: “Skuld is recognised in the Japanese marine insurance market for its financial robustness, professionalism, and high-quality service. I look forward to establishing a strong Skuld presence in Japan to further strengthen our close relationships with the Japanese shipping community and provide excellent service and support to the Japanese shipping community for many years to come."
