Property and casualty insurer ACE Group has launched ACE Middle Market Solutions, in a bid to expand operations in Continental Europe's insurance markets.

ACE has designed the new market insurance proposition to provide its range of multinational capabilities for key middle market broker partners.

ACE Group Continental Europe regional president Jeff Moghrabi said: "At ACE, we have been investing in and building our middle market proposition across the key countries of Continental Europe for many years and we recognise the critical importance of the broker for clients in this segment.

"The launch of ACE Middle Market Solutions represents a natural evolution in our programme of investment, and a reflection of the changing multinational and servicing needs of this important and sometimes underserved segment."

The insurance proposition will help to provide defined points of contact for brokers for their relationship management, underwriting and claims needs.

It will also offer increased insight for brokers on ACE’s risk appetite for the middle market segment by country, industry and line of business, as well as access to educational and technical support on emerging risks for brokers and their middle market clients.

Initially, the company intends to introduce the proposition in France, Germany and Italy, while later in the year in other key Continental Europe markets.

ACE offers commercial and personal property and casualty insurance, personal accident and supplemental health insurance, reinsurance and life insurance services to different group of clients in around 54 countries.
