Chaucer Dublin sets up new London branch
The Dublin-based subsidiary of Chaucer, an insurance group underwriting at Lloyd's, is to establish a branch in London to write a range of international specialty insurance and reinsurance business.
The Chaucer Insurance Company DAC has received authorisation from the UK Prudential Regulatory Authority.
The Central Bank of Ireland had approved the formation of Chaucer Insurance Company DAC in June 2017.
John Fowle, chief executive officer of Chaucer, said: "The launch of our new London branch and Irish insurance platform underscores our commitment to being the smarter choice for brokers and clients, enabling Chaucer to provide enhanced specialty capabilities, greater flexibility, and easier access for business worldwide."
Michelle Moore, general manager of Chaucer Dublin, added: "Through Chaucer Dublin and our London branch, we will deliver the same high level of service to brokers and clients, including our market leading claims service, as with every policy written through Chaucer Syndicate 1084."
