Credit insurer NCM has opened a new office in Reading to service the south and south east.

The insurer recently reorganised its corporate business unit to develop closer links with customers and brokers and provide insurance against commercial and political risks.

Laurence Easterbrook, who heads up the five-strong Reading team, said: “Many of our key customers and brokers are based around this region. Opening a new office on their doorstep is one of the ways in which we are strengthening our regional presence throughout the UK.”
