Construction is very much an important part of Zurich London's business, Zurich London's corporate head Alan Fairhead has said.

Fairhead reaffirmed Zurich London's interest in construction business following Zurich Commercial's withdrawal of some agencies with non-specialist brokers last week.

"Please be reassured that Zurich London are not pulling out of providing construction insurance and are very much open for business," Fairhead said in a letter to brokers earlier this week.
