Swiss Re Corporate Solutions Opens Netherlands for Benelux Market

August 29, 2012

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions announced that it has opened an office in Amstelveen, the Netherlands, to “reinforce its presence in the Benelux region. The office will provide insurance solutions to large and upper-middle market corporations domiciled in the region, offering a broad range of property, casualty and industry-specific products.”

The bulletin pointed out that the “Benelux countries form a mature and competitive commercial insurance market, with sophisticated insurance buyers and high quality risk management practices. The region is also characterized by robust economic activity in the industrial and commercial sectors. These conditions make the Benelux market an attractive fit with Swiss Re Corporate Solutions’ ability to offer large net capacity and appetite for high quality risk.”

Fred Kleiterp, Head of Europe, Middle East & Africa, commented: “Through the opening of an office in Amstelveen we clearly signal our strong commitment to this important region. With our local presence, we will be ideally positioned to better serve and strengthen relationships with clients and brokers.”

Swiss Re said the “new Swiss Re Corporate Solutions office will offer insurance products across various lines of business and industries, including Property, Casualty, Energy/Utilities, Marine/Cargo, Architects & Engineers and Executive Risks, among others.”

Jeroen Weurding, a senior insurance executive, will join Swiss Re Corporate Solutions to lead the business in the Benelux region. He is a Dutch national, and has more than 15 years of experience in the commercial insurance market and previously worked for Zurich Financial Services and Delta Lloyd.

The bulletin added that Swiss Re’s Corporate Solutions office network in Europe “is part of its strategy to grow its book of business with large and upper-middle market corporations. Earlier this year an office was established in Genoa, and last year in Copenhagen and Paris. Other European offices are located in London, Milan, Munich and Zurich.”
