Thomas Nordberg, Managing Director of The Swedish Club yesterday announced the opening of new, expanded London offices. He was speaking at London International Shipping Week (LISW), where the Club hosted an evening reception for members, brokers and business partners.
“As the shipping world focuses on London, the timing of this move could not be bettered,” said Mr Nordberg. “A key focus for 2023 has been the strengthening of our regional offerings, and I am pleased to say that our development plans for the growing London office are well in hand.
“London is an important business centre boasting a deep pool of underwriters, brokers, and legal experts, with a reputation for fostering innovation and setting industry standards. We are developing a full-service office to enable us to build even stronger relationships with our existing clients and forge new partnerships within this vibrant business community. Our new, larger premises will accommodate this expansion.”
Guests were warmly welcomed by Lars Nilsson, who established the London office in 2015, and will now be taking up a head office role as senior advisor to Thomas Nordberg. In his opening address Mr Nordberg thanked Lars for his commitment to the Club and for the firm foundations that he has set in place for the Club’s development in the London market.
The evening was hosted by Tord Nilsson who will be taking up the reins as head of Team UK later this year. He said: “It is a privilege to be at the heart of the insurance industry, where change happens on a daily basis. We have had a presence in London for eight years, and are now building on that commitment and working towards delivering underwriting and claims services to owners and brokers from the new location.”
The Swedish Club’s LISW event was held at Fishmongers’ Hall and the Club welcomed more than 150 guests to an evening of good food and entertainment. It provided an opportunity for both Thomas and Tord to share their plans for the future and to engage with the London shipping community.
The Swedish Club continues to be in the heart of the City and its new offices can be found located opposite Lloyd’s of London and Leadenhall Market, at 37-39 Lime Street, London, EC3M 7AY.
