Its membership is made up of leaders of top (re)insurance companies around the world.
“I am excited about supporting The Geneva Association as a member. Its distinct mission resonates well with Peak Re’s commitment to narrowing protection gaps, especially in the developing and emerging markets of Asia,” said Mr Hahn.
