Insurance Industry Expertise

Our leaders are all experts in their fields. That might be in broking, systems, underwriting, finance, claims or logistics, but they must be experts.

We are also naturally collaborative, interested and culturally astute. And thoroughly invested in the global insurance industry.

Philip Bilney

Executive Chairman

Philip Bilney builds insurance sector enterprises in Asia and around the world, bringing perspective, connections and a detailed understanding of the practical realities of ventures and projects.

In 2016, Philip established the +8 Group of companies in Hong Kong to develop pragmatic and effective insurance and technology companies in a growing portfolio of niche brands.

Philip is a non-executive director in numerous insurance sector businesses, both in Asia and elsewhere. Amongst others, he is the Founder and Chairman of Hong Kong-based Rare Earth Insurance Partners, a marine and specialty lines intermediary providing a cloud-enabled inward and outbound reinsurance broking service connecting Greater China with international markets.
