UK and German Insurance experts gather in London to discuss post-Brexit options. UK insurers and reinsurers advised to consider longer term options offered by mature insurance centres such as Cologne to maintain access to huge EU insurance market. Adrian Ladbury reports.
Cologne is an obvious destination for German and international insurers and reinsurers that are keen to access this huge market and the wider European Union. The city lies at the heart of the massive North Rhine Westphalia economic region that is home to almost 18 million people.
A combination of state of the art air, road and rail connections means that this region is superbly connected to the rest of Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands and the UK. Cologne Bonn Airport is particularly well connected to the UK and Ireland.
