Doha-based Q-Re LLC announced that it has changed its legal name to Qatar Reinsurance Company LLC, and will henceforth trade as Qatar Re.
Gunther Saacke, CEO of Qatar Re said: “Over the course of the past 18 months our company has seen a fundamental transformation. We have significantly grown our book of business and established a global franchise with an emphasis on specialty lines.
“Our branding is to reflect this transition. We started off as a regional reinsurer. Going forward, our legal name and trade mark will highlight our roots in Qatar to which we owe one of our key competitive differentiators: an independent capital base, largely uncorrelated with global capital markets.”
Qatar Re also said it is “in the process of developing and implementing a new visual identity, so its website, email addresses, bank accounts, stationary, etc. will also change. Qatar Re’s legal and contractual obligations (originally underwritten by it as Q-Re LLC) will not, however, be affected by the name change.
