Standard Club opens new claims office in Tokyo

The Standard Club has celebrates 20 years of partnership with Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance Co with the opening of a Tokyo claims office.

Standard Club began its joint venture with Tokio Marine to underwrite P&I business in Japan 20 years ago.

Tokio Standard now underwrites 8% of P&I business in Japan, Standard Club said. The office will be led by experienced Claims Director, Masaki Maeda. Masaki Maeda will liaise with and assist Tokio Marine in servicing Tokio Standard 21 (TS21) members through claims handling and provision of general claims advice. He will work closely with the club’s claims team in Singapore.

Masaki joins the club after a career of 30 years with Tokio Marine, where he has held claims and managerial roles.

Masaki spent several years working with TS21 and has a longstanding relationship with the club. Jeremy Grose, Group Chief Executive at the Standard Club said that “we are delighted to celebrate 20 years of TS21. Japan is a key market for us and TMNF is a highly valued partner. This is a significant step in continuing to enhance the service provided by TS21.”
