The ACE Group of insurance and reinsurance companies announced today that it has been granted a license from the Dubai Financial Services Authority to establish a wholly owned subsidiary in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

ACE has been granted a DFSA Category IV license enabling the company to offer reinsurance products to the market, including a full range of property, casualty and accident and health coverages. The new company is called ACE Insurance Management (DIFC) Ltd and will be managed by Mark Quinn, who is the Senior Executive Officer. ACE also plans to strengthen its underwriting presence in Dubai with the appointment of a Senior Property Underwriter.

Opened in 2004, the DIFC is the world's fastest growing international financial centre and offers ACE access to a fully integrated reinsurance market.

Steve Dixon, Regional Managing Director for ACE in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), comments: "Our license to operate in the DIFC is a significant milestone in ACE's growth across the Middle East region. We now have in place a solid team of specialist underwriters located close to the market, providing reinsurance solutions that are reinforced by access to the resources of our global network."

Andrew Kendrick, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of ACE European Group (which incorporates MENA) comments: "Having a presence in the DIFC is very important for ACE's development and demonstrates our commitment to the region. We see a great opportunity for our Dubai operation to build on the success we have had throughout the MENA region."
