Richard Turner is heading up the office, with more appointments promised

RSA has today opened its new office in Luxembourg.

The office will provide a platform for RSA in Europe post-Brexit. It is designed to minimise disruption to RSA’s business with EU-based customers and ensure the business continues to serve UK customers’ needs in Europe.

RSA Luxembourg (RSAL) will be led by Richard Turner, who previously oversaw RSA’s EU business from the UK. He has relocated to Luxembourg for the role.

His team will operate from Luxembourg and across Europe. RSA say new appointments within this team are set to be announced soon.

The news comes as figures from across the insurance industry urged the government to step up its efforts to agree a post-Brexit deal with the EU before next April’s deadline.

Approval for the office was granted in June. It is one of several insurers looking to set up an office in Luxembourg in preparation for Brexit. Liberty, Hiscox and Elite have all announced similar plans.

RSAL director Turner said: “RSA Luxembourg demonstrates our commitment to the European Union. Our investment in this office showcases our commitment to continuity for our customers and other business partners across the EU post Brexit.”
