Selective entry is focused on minimizing members to exposures of the more adverse cost of incidence in the northern hemisphere, and western world. The focus of our expertise is regional to the Indian Ocean and South China Sea shipping industry.
Profitable risk management is the forefront of accepting tonnage. A conservative and well structured portfolio are the means of sustaining the Club Asian capital support.
