Reinsurance is delivered inefficiently. We're changing that.

Rare Earth is a young company, created by old hands.

Rare Earth Insurance Partners is creating a more competitive, sustainable and intuitive way of doing business. Quite simply, bringing reinsurance into the 21st Century.


Reinsurance is fundamentally international.
We like that – we’re free marketeers.

We’re headquartered in Hong Kong, but you can find us in China & Taiwan, in Europe and in North America. We have great friends & contacts worldwide, and we work in the cloud.


Experience counts. Technology alone will never be enough.

We're enthusiastic industry advocates, specialised, experienced & connected. Our technology is built on that – efficient, secure, trustworthy reinsurance for a new kind of market.


Chief Executive

Philip Bilney has worked in marine insurance and related areas since 1981 when he started as a Hull and Cargo broker at Lloyd’s.

Philip moved to Singapore in November 1990 to establish the Asia Pacific marine underwriting operations of Sun Alliance Insurance (now RSA Group) in the capacity of Regional Marine Manager, before transferring to Hong Kong in December 1993 to take up the post of Assistant Group Manager.

In April 1997 he invested in a small Hull and P&I broker and over the following 20 years transformed it into a multinational enterprise. What became FP Marine Risks was granted Lloyd’s broker status and at its height employed over 120 staff in six offices around the world. Philip sold his stake in 2016, with a vision to create a new model for specialty insurance & reinsurance broking in Asia.

Philip is a regular speaker and writer on marine insurance, both within the industry and to the industry’s clients, with a particular focus on the logistics sector. He also frequently undertakes consultation and expert witness work in the field of marine insurance.


Head of Operations

Angel has over 20 years of experience in insurance & reinsurance operations, particularly with complex reinsurance programmes. She now oversees Rare Earth’s cloud-based support service infrastructure from our Hong Kong office.


Managing Director

Mark has been working in the marine insurance industry for over 20 years. After graduating from university in 1997 he started work as an Underwriting Assistant at Tokio Marine China, before moving on to AIG. In 2010 Mark joined RSA China where he became Head of Marine, responsible for managing the portfolio throughout the country.

After 16 years of marine underwriting Mark made the transition to broking in 2013, focusing on providing marine reinsurance solutions to cedants in mainland China and the development of inward overseas opportunities.

Mark joined Rare Earth China as Managing Director in December 2017.
