BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Travelers picks Dublin for EU subsidiary after Brexit

Travelers picks Dublin for EU subsidiary after Brexit

(Reuters) – Travelers Cos. Inc. said on Tuesday its European arm will create a subsidiary in Dublin in response to Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

The insurer said it would apply for authorization of a new, wholly owned insurance subsidiary incorporated in Ireland.

Insurers are making contingency plans after Britain’s vote to leave the bloc means they risk losing “passporting” rights that allow U.K. financial services firms to trade in Europe without the need for locally regulated entities.

“This new subsidiary will enable Travelers to continue to seamlessly serve its customers and broking partners in Ireland and across Europe when the U.K. exits the European Union, as currently planned in March 2019,” Travelers said.

The plan will not affect Travelers’ British operations, it said.

“Ireland is a natural choice for Travelers to establish its EU-based subsidiary,” Matthew Wilson, CEO of Travelers Europe, said.

Dublin has emerged as the EU location for a number of players in the wider insurance market including specialist insurance groups Chaucer, part of Hanover Insurance Group, and Beazley P.L.C.
