Industrial Insurance Group Belgium, part of Den Hartigh Holding N.V. in Brussels, has been admitted to the very select group of Lloyd’s Coverholders in London, the world’s largest insurer. With this recognition from Lloyd’s, Industrial Insurance Group Belgium wants to move towards a more specialised international portfolio.
Following a process lasting several months, Jan den Hartigh (director), Marieke van Rhoon (authorised underwriting agent) and Diederik Brussaard (claims manager) of Industrial Insurance Group Belgium in Brussels, recently heard that they have been admitted to Lloyd’s. The company and the individuals who receive Underwriting Authority have been the subject of a thorough screening. Jan den Hartigh: “This recognition is very important to us. There are just a handful of insurance companies in the Benelux that are eligible for this because the admission requirements are very strict. As coverholder, we can provide tailor-made services to a rapidly changing insurance industry.” In addition, this recognition presents new opportunities for other intermediaries to join Den Hartigh Serviceproviding as a sub-broker.
