FWD Management

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 Thailand, the insurance industry continues to blossom with plenty of opportunities ahead, providing an ideal environment for innovations. I am delighted to see our Thailand 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 Thailand, 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.

The opportunity to lead FWD in Thailand is very exciting, given FWD’s inspiring vision and commitment to change traditional perceptions of insurance. I firmly believe customers should be at the heart of the business and that combined with a culture of innovation, FWD will continue to build on its strong foundations to deliver insurance propositions which are easy-to-understand and match our customer’s insurance needs.
