Additionally Richard Turner, a 35-year veteran of the firm currently overseeing European Union (EU) business from the U.K., is set to be appointed in a Director role for RSAL.

Existing EU branch business of RSAI PLC will be transferred to RSA Luxembourg (RSAL) by way of a Part VII transfer and then directly onto the RSAL licence from 1st January 2019.

Commenting on the approval, Tony Buckle, Managing Director of RSA’s Global Risk Solutions, said, “RSA Luxembourg demonstrates our commitment to the European Union. It provides certainty and continuity for our customers and other business partners across the EU post Brexit. RSA’s European branch business focuses on large commercial clients and employs approximately 250 people across the EU.”

Turner added, “This is an important step forward for RSA. I am looking forward to relocating to Luxembourg and to continue working with our management team to grow our business.”
