IBR Staff Writer Published 09 June 2017

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has opened a new office in Manchester, UK in a move to bolster its footprint in Britain's regional market.

The operations at the new office in Manchester would cater to large and upper midsized companies.

The Manchester office, located in Spinningfields, will deliver its services via national broking partners. It will have focus on primary property, casualty and certain specialty business.

The office, which is expected to be fully operational by mid-July, will serve as a regional hub for primary commercial insurance business serving the northern England and the Midlands areas.

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions UK head Marc Davis said that by establishing the company’s presence in the regional market, the plan is to consolidate on existing relationships while leveraging on growth opportunities with both clients and brokers.

Swiss Re has appointed Shelley Wright as the head of the Manchester office.

Davis said: "Shelley will help our UK team continue to strengthen our regional market position.

"The depth of her industry experience, combined with her successful track record in the UK regional markets, makes her the ideal leader to deliver on our plans. I'm looking forward to working with her as we build our team in Manchester and provide clients and brokers with relevant solutions and services locally."

In March, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions opened a new office in the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The Swiss Re office in this part of the world focuses on catering to the needs of large and upper mid-sized businesses in Malaysia via broking partners and intermediaries.
