Over 400 staff are employed in its four regional headquarters with 45 nationalities speaking 30 languages.
At present, MSH INTERNATIONAL has approximately 600 corporate clients and 16,500 individual clients residing in Southeast Asia. With the opening of this new office in Bangkok, MSH INTERNATIONAL aims at offering a better proximity to its members living in Southeast Asia.
Laurent Cochet, Executive Director of MSH INTERNATIONAL reveals that MSH INTERNATIONAL chose Thailand because of its central location for international business expansion in Southeast Asia. It now appears as one of the top expat destinations when compared globally across economic and lifestyle factors. According to Paul-Dominique Vacharasinthu, Partner and Director of MSH INTERNATIONAL (Thailand), Bangkok as a location is important as the Thai government has established a clear goal of pushing Thailand as the region’s “Health Hub” with its entry into the ASEAN Economic Community or AEC in the next two years.
When entering the Thai market, MSH INTERNATIONAL (Thailand) was required to register as an insurance broker company, since “International Health Insurance Management”, as a class of business, did not exist in Thailand. Its main products and services include: (1) International Private Medical Insurance or IPMI for globally-mobile individuals and SMEs and (2) Customized solutions for medium-to-large companies, non-profit organizations and international organizations.
