“Our decision to focus our activities in London on a single company platform reflects the unique strength of Sompo’s global reach, brand, ratings and financial stability,” said John Charman, executive chairman of Sompo International Holdings Ltd. and CEO Overseas Insurance and Reinsurance Business, Sompo Holdings.
“Having one single platform will allow us to continue to profitably grow our business and deliver superior value and solutions to our clients and distribution partners. With Sompo International’s rating equivalent to Lloyd’s, we can utilize that rating and our existing operation to be an even more streamlined and efficient provider of risk solutions whilst maintaining a meaningful and diversified trading relationship with Lloyd’s in the years to come,” he said.
Julian James, CEO International Insurance said: “Our ambition is to grow our London market and European business significantly in the near term. Sompo International is now recognized by our brokers and clients as a global leader with significant capability and excellent talent. With one platform, we will be able to provide them with efficient access to the very best products and services, underpinned by highly rated security.”
