The Britannia P&I Club has underlined its commitment to the Danish P&I market by opening a new office in Copenhagen to serve the Danish insurance market.
B Denmark P&I has been set up to enhance its service delivery and growth potential in Denmark which currently accounts for 16% of its business.
“I am delighted to announce the opening of B Denmark’s offices. B Denmark is staffed by experienced professionals who have local knowledge that will strengthen the global high-quality service our Members receive,” said Andrew Cutler, CEO of Britannia.
“We have a significant percentage of our Membership in Denmark and are confident that B Denmark will allow us to continue to service our members at the highest level.”
The expansion into Denmark also reaffirms previous comments from the Club about having offices in strategic locations to ensure the Membership receives the best service possible in a timely manner.
It is a significant move and follows previous announcements by the Club including the acquisition of their Exclusive Correspondents in Japan of April 2017, Hong Kong in June 2018, Singapore in September 2018, and the opening of a Greek office in Autumn 2018.
Michael Boje-Larsen has taken up the appointment as managing director of B Denmark P&I. As a lawyer with considerable experience in maritime law, he has previously worked both for another IG Group P&I Club and in private practice.
