Staying well connected to our international markets helps strengthen our global capabilities. One such opportunity is the European Alliance of Insurance Companies or Eurapco. With representatives from many European nations (France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, etc.), this network focuses on sharing insurance industry knowledge, skills and insights on a peer to peer basis. This week, a commercial lines group seminar is underway, featuring a presentation by OneBeacon Technology’s John Wurzler and Lloyd Takata, who will discuss FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act). We welcomed this opportunity and look forward to learning about emerging trends from our European counterparts.
