AM Best Opens New Office in Amsterdam

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AM Best, the global credit rating agency and information provider
with a unique focus on the insurance industry, will this week formally
open its second European office, located in the city of Amsterdam. AM
Best, which rates more than 3,500 companies in over 90 countries,
currently has regional offices in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai
and Mexico City, with its world headquarters in the United States.

Nick Charteris-Black, managing director, market development for Europe,
Middle East and Africa at AM Best said: “We are excited to be in
Amsterdam. This new office in the Netherlands supports our growth
strategy to provide rating services for the (re)insurance industry in
Continental Europe. AM Best was drawn to Amsterdam for a variety of
reasons, including its well-established financial centre, strong pool of
talent and good transport links to the key European locations where our
clients are based. This also brings a successful conclusion to our
planning for Brexit to provide ongoing services to our EU 27 clients.”

Jeroen Nijland, Commissioner at the Netherlands Foreign Investment
Agency (NFIA), from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, welcomed AM
Best to Amsterdam. He said: “I am delighted that AM Best has chosen to
set up its operations in the Netherlands and house its European facility
here. AM Best selecting the Netherlands is further proof that our
country is very attractive for global businesses operating at the
forefront of information and technological developments. We are located
in the heart of Europe, have great access to an English-speaking talent
pool, and excellent international digital and transport connections.
With uncertainty due to Brexit, we welcome companies looking for an
alternative and stable location as their new business base.”

AM Best is to host a cocktail networking event on Thursday 7 March in
Amsterdam to mark the occasion. Attendees to the launch party will also
have the opportunity to hear first-hand from AM Best senior analysts on
a range of topics, including insurance rating developments in various
European countries and sectors. AM Best has published extensive research
on the key trends impacting the insurance industry, including
environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices, innovation and
technology, Brexit, and emerging risks such as cyber.

Press and industry participants interested in attending the launch event
should contact
for more information.
