DAVID LAW is an experienced and accomplished investment banker and corporate adviser, specialising in the Asian financial services markets with particular emphasis on the insurance industry in Asia Pacific.

In his background with Standard Chartered he was responsible for advising the bank in their selection of a bancassurance partner in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia which involved an extensive selection process, the development of the operating model, and the establishment of the agreement between SCB and the chosen partner, Prudential plc.

Heading the specialist investment banking operations of Fox-Pitt, Kelton for the region gave David even greater intensity of involvement in the financial services industry across the region.

He was heavily involved in Swiss Re’s bancassurance business development in India; managed bancassurance partnership developments in Hong Kong, China, India, Indonesia and Korea.

His knowledge of the business and client list is second to none in the region, having over the past decade undertaken assignments for a wide range of companies including AXA, Fortis, Manulife, Standard Chartered Bank, Swiss Re, Aviva, DBS, Prudential, Dah Sing, BEA, Royal & Sun Alliance, Credit Suisse, Standard Life, Bank NISP, among many others.
