ARIAS Asia is a not-for-profit organisation that provides arbitration and mediation services for insurance and reinsurance markets in Asia. It offers insurers a cost-effective way of resolving disputes arising from their insurance and reinsurance policies.
Unlike other arbitration institutions, ARIAS Asia does not charge administration fees and allows the mediator / arbitration tribunal to run the process on an ad-hoc basis. This model has been used for decades by ARIAS organisations in the UK, US, Europe and Latin America to resolve insurance and reinsurance disputes. ARIAS Asia offers this same approach to Asian users.
ARIAS Asia also works to promote alternative dispute resolution for the insurance sector through training and education. It collaborates with other arbitration/mediation institutions, professional associations and training providers to deliver these services. ARIAS Asia aims to help legal, insurance and other professionals to understand and use arbitration and mediation to resolve disputes.
ARIAS Asia is a member of the AIDA (Association Internationale de Droit des Assurances) network: https://aidainsurance.org
