Hiscox Ireland secures new office space

14th November 2018

Dublin, Ireland (14 November 2018) – Hiscox Ireland moves to new premises this week, as the Dublin arm of the specialist global insurer continues to expand.

The new offices are located within the Observatory Building at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay - a modern, six-storey development that opened in 2007 in Dublin’s South Docks. The insurer was previously located on the South City Centre’s Mount St Crescent.

Hiscox opened its first office in Dublin in 2008 with two members of staff, and has since grown to a 16-strong team of sales and underwriting professionals. With a decade on-the-ground and a strong local broker network established, plans to grow the team by a further 50% over the coming months are well underway. Part of this growth is due to structural changes that Hiscox is making as part of its preparations for Brexit, with Hiscox Ireland establishing its own claims team locally, as well as employing additional underwriters in 2019.

Richard O’Dwyer, Managing Director of Hiscox Ireland commented: “We already have a strong foothold in the Irish market supported by an established team here in Dublin and we’re excited to see this grow. The autonomy that Brexit will bring to Hiscox Ireland is an exciting next-step in our journey, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners for their support over the last decade, and during the next.”
