The first step of our expansion plan into Continental Europe is complete with the launch of our Dutch arm. Although our products have been made available to brokers in the Republic of Ireland since July 2010, we have been primarily focused on the UK since we were established in 1993.
However we have received approval from Dutch regulator Autoriteit Financiële Markten and Lloyd’s to launch APC Holland.
Based in The Hague, the independent MGA will offer a range of covers for the Dutch SME market via a network of brokers.
It will also use our QuoteMac on-line trading platform, a facility that to date has not been widely available in the local market.
Led by Paul Röthengatter, the team aims to become one of the leading MGAs in the local market by both providing access to the Lloyd’s and London markets and delivering a high level of service to its business introducers.
The Dutch office will be developed as the template for further European and International expansion.
