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.

We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
