London, UK (PRWEB UK) 25 January 2013
From January 2013, through the operating platform of Tokio Marine Europe Insurance Limited (TMEI) in London, TMG will increase its focus on EMEA-domiciled multinational clients with programmes placed in London. In this way TMG can take advantage of TMEI’s strong S&P rating, which currently stands at AA-, and, its network of offices in Europe. TMG will also have access to TMEI’s experienced team of risk engineers and claims personnel. William Knowles will lead this initiative, supported by Brett Davey, Daniel Salmon and Tom Henry. William joined TMG in 2012, having previously worked at Munich Re.
This development is in addition to TMG’s existing operation at Kiln where insurance is provided to multinational customers via Lloyds Syndicate TMK 1880, whose capacity is provided by Tokio Marine Holdings. Going forward, TMG will provide capacity for EMEA domiciled clients using TMEI security, while it will use Syndicate 1880 for non EMEA risks, including US business placed in London.
Commenting on this development, Lloyd Tunnicliffe, Head of TMG, said “Having the TMEI platform to help us develop our Property offering for EMEA domiciled large corporate customers is an exciting opportunity, especially at a time of financial uncertainty when buyers are searching to partner with financially strong insurers.”
Alastair Blundell, Executive Operations Officer at TMEI, added “TMG will help TMEI offer true Property proposition for large clients, drawing together the collective knowledge and experience that the TM Group can provide globally.”
While the initiative will start in the UK, during the course of 2013, plans will be rolled out to deliver the TMG product offering via TMEI’s offices in France, Spain and Germany.
