UK CNA Hardy announces new EU subsidiary in Luxembourg

CNA Hardy, a leading specialist commercial insurance provider for clients within the Lloyd’s and company markets, has announced its intention to establish a new European subsidiary in Luxembourg.
David Brosnan, CEO of CNA Hardy, said: “We are in the business of providing certainty for our customers, and in an increasingly uncertain political environment, we must ensure we act now to provide continuity to our employees, customers and brokers. Luxembourg is the optimum jurisdiction for our European Union base due to its geographic location between three of our Continental European offices, its stable economic and political environment and the professional approach of the Luxembourg regulator. We will be recruiting a local management team to be based in Luxembourg, comprising risk, finance and compliance functions.”
Dino Robusto, Chairman and CEO of CNA, said: “After the result of the referendum last year, we began planning to ensure we maintained our ability to write and service European Union business. We are committed to our operations within Europe, and building upon our global reach. Establishing a new subsidiary in Luxembourg will enhance our ability to do just that.”
The process of establishment is already underway, and expected to be complete by early 2019.
CNA Hardy, acting through Hardy (Underwriting Agencies) Limited and CNA Insurance Company Limited, independent wholly-owned UK subsidiaries, are a leading specialist commercial insurance provider for clients within both the Lloyd’s and company markets.
