The Norwegian Hull Club is pleased to announce it has opened its first underwriting office outside of Norway on Lime Street in the heart of the City of London’s financial district.
The office will allow the Club to strengthen client and broker relationships in London, providing easier access to the Club’s wide range of products, experience and expertise. The office will initially have a staff of four, including two underwriters, Ole Wikborg and Andrew Hannay.
Hans Christian Seim, CEO of Norwegian Hull Club, says: “Our new London office reflects our increased international presence and our continued desire to work closely with all our brokers and clients wherever they are based. London has a long history and a strong reputation as the main hub for international insurance. We have developed good relationships in the London market over many years, and our new office will further strengthen these relationships with brokers and clients alike through face-to-face engagement. It will also increase our growth potential, in terms of general business and new insurance products, involving working with dedicated specialist brokers, whilst continuing to deliver the service and expertise that our brokers and clients know and expect from Norwegian Hull Club.”
Norwegian Hull Club ranks as one of the world’s largest pure marine underwriters and insures around 10,000 vessels and units. It already has underwriting offices in Bergen and Oslo, whilst its Marine Benefits medical insurance subsidiary has a service office in Manila.
