Willis Towers Watson: new reinsurance hub for the German speaking regions

Willis Towers Watson has launched a new hub to focus on facultative reinsurance business across the German-speaking 'DACH' region of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

The leading global advisory, broking, and solutions company has appointed two highly-experienced industry leaders to establish the hub from Munich, Germany.

The new hub will further enhance the Willis Towers Watson corporate risk and broking proposition in Western Europe by optimising placement solutions through facultative reinsurance.
