MS Amlin announces key Brexit development

MS Amlin, a leading global (re)insurer, today announces the approval from the National bank of Belgium (NBB), to re-domicile Amlin Insurance SE (AISE), from the UK to Belgium. AISE is the trading entity for UK and Europe. 

On the 29th May, the Board of the NBB granted AISE a licence for insurance and reinsurance activities from its Brussels office and associated branches in the EEA. These branches include offices in the Netherlands and France. 

Whilst this development will have no effect on the day-to-day operations of any of MS Amlin’s trading entities, the approval and licensing is a significant milestone for the business as it prepares for Brexit. 

Kim Hvirgel, AISE CEO, said “I’m delighted the NBB have approved our application to re-domicile to Brussels, as this supports our strategic vision of placing AISE at the heart of the EU.  Brexit inevitably creates uncertainty for clients and brokers alike, but this move means MS Amlin will continue to be well placed to provide innovative solutions to our clients in the European Economic Area during the Brexit transition period and beyond.” 

Having secured regulatory approval, MS Amlin will commence the process of re-domiciling its entity operations, so as to be fully operational from its new base in Brussels from 1 January 2019.
