Elite 200x200Elite Insurance, the general and niche lines insurer, is proud to announce the launch of its Paris based French branch.

The French branch underlines Elite’s commitment to continued growth in the French insurance market. This latest branch compliments Elite’s existing UK, Spanish and Italian branches.

Elite’s CEO, Jason Smart, said in a statement: “The launch of our French branch in January 2015 is a natural move as France is now our second biggest domicile in terms of gross written premium. In 2014 £45.1m of our £125.6m GWP came from the French market. We see fantastic growth potential in the French market within the lines we write”.

Elite currently writes business in a number of classes which include financial lines, motor, pet, property and casualty, legal expenses, warranties and bonding and surety to mention a few, and across a range of jurisdictions.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
