Nicolas Faquet

Group Founder - CEO|Linkedin

Nicolas has been in the insurance industry for the last 28 years, with most of his time spent in Asia. He started his career working for MNCs such as AXA and AIG, and took an entrepreneurial turn in 2009 to launch the first Direct-to-Consumer venture in Southeast Asia, DirectAsia. After launching DirectAsia in Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand, he sold the company to Hiscox, the international specialist insurer, in 2014. With a strong belief that D2C insurance in Asia was still largely an untapped opportunity he launched Roojai in Thailand in 2016.
