ACE appoints head of trade credit


Insurer ACE, which has operations in Bermuda, has appointed Julian Hudson as head of trade credit, ACE global markets.

Hudson will be responsible for the development and profitable growth of ACE’s global trade credit business.

He joined ACE in 2007 to launch the company’s political risk and trade credit office in Singapore. After a successful seven-year tenure in Asia-Pacific, he was appointed to the newly created, London-based role of chief development officer.

Prior to joining ACE, Hudson held positions at Jardine Lloyd Thompson Asia and Euler Trade Indemnity in the UK.  His appointment is effective immediately and he will continue to be based in London, reporting to Julian Edwards, head of political risk and credit for ACE global markets.

Hudson’s appointment follows ACE’s recent expansion of its political risk and credit division to Japan, where the company now offers its Japanese clients a range of comprehensive trade credit insurance solutions.

“I am delighted that Julian is going to lead our global trade credit business,” said Julian Edwards, head of political risk and credit for ACE global markets.

“Since he joined our team in 2007, he has played an important role in making ACE a global market leader in political risk and credit insurance solutions.

“His wide experience in areas like new product development and distribution combined with his market knowledge, will contribute greatly to our effort to provide our clients with the comprehensive and secure, long-term trade credit solutions they need to confront today’s complex global challenges.”
