UK P&I PREPARES FOR EU EXIT

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 

The UK P&I Club, a provider of P&I insurance and other services to the international shipping community, has won approval from the Netherland’s financial regulator for a licence for its Rotterdam-based subsidiary UK P&I Club NV (UKNV).

The new subsidiary will ensure the UK Club, together with other Thomas Miller managed Clubs for which UKNV is fronting, can continue to serve Members after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. 

The UKNV Rotterdam office is located in the World Port Center and the management board based in Rotterdam consists of: Hugo Wynn-Williams as CEO; Paul van den Brom as CFO and Rene Doff as Chief Risk Officer

The UKNV Supervisory Board consists of five members; two local Members and three from the UK (Europe) Board and Members’ Committee. UKNV has recruited staff to additional support roles and the office is operational.

Wynn-Williams said: “We have been assiduous in our planning to ensure the UK P&I Club, together with other Thomas Miller managed clubs, are able to continue our European operations once the UK leaves the EU. With the expected loss of passporting rights, we have put these plans in place to ensure our Members can continue to conduct their business with little or no disruption.”

Andrew Taylor, CEO of Thomas Miller P&I, said: “The measures taken by the UK Club will provide continuity of service to our Members, irrespective of the outcome or timing of Brexit. Our long term planning has ensured we have the relevant authorisations in place prior to the UK leaving the EU. However, this is not a brass plate exercise and our Rotterdam subsidiary will be a fully functioning office to ensure our Members continue to receive the same excellent standard of service they are accustomed to.”
