Serving Asia’s most discerning market, KSY SPECIALITY LTD looks beyond traditional products and customer service axioms. Its dynamic Chief Executive AGNES KOON talks about the future.


Ko Ying, founder and director of KSY Speciality Ltd, retired in 1992 from Asia Insurance Company Ltd as General Manager. He set up this broking company specialized in Jewellers’ Block Insurance for wholesalers, retailers and manufactures of jewellery business.

Agnes Koon retired from Falcon Insurance Company (Hong Kong) Ltd as Director and Chief Operating Officer in 2010.

She was a founding member of Falcon Insurance in 1998, a Canadian based insurer with parent of Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd (listed on NY and Toronto Stock Exchange with 20,000 employees world-wide).

When Koon retired from Falcon Insurance, she has already been closely involved with a number of NGOs in charitable work. She wanted to retire as an employee but had no intention of retiring from the community.

She has a strong passion to contribute to develop the insurance industry and to help the insured public with her professional expertise in insurance and profound knowledge.

In order to continue her charitable work, Koon decided (in 2010) to invest into KSY and be its Chief Executive. She wants to control her time allocation.
