Global Head of Health Reinsurance Partnerships, AXA – Global Healthcare, Singapore
Laurent Pochat-Cottilloux is an experienced health insurance professional, who has spent 20 years in the industry. He is an actuary by trade, and also has an MBA from London Business School. He has worked both in start-ups (launching a UK health insurance company) and in large corporate environments (Standard Life, AXA).
In 2010 he set up a new health reinsurance hub in Singapore. Over the last few years, the team has launched a series of innovative health programs in markets big and small across Asia-Pacific, from Pakistan to New Zealand. These products tend to cater for the mid-to high-end segments, which typically include coverage for cross-border healthcare (i.e. medical travel).
AXA offers a unique “360 degrees” reinsurance proposition, dedicated to health insurance. They support their cedants across the entire health value chain, from market assessment to product design, medical underwriting and TPA & assistance services. AXA will work with both Life and non-Life companies, typically on the basis of long-term proportional treaties.
In 2016, this health partnership model was rolled out across the World – with a particular focus on Latin America and Africa. To date, AXA has health reinsurance partners in 40 countries across 5 continents.
Laurent, 46, lives with his wife and three young children in Singapore.
