QIC Global, the international specialty insurance and reinsurance subsidiary of Qatar Insurance Group, today announces its intention to align its core companies under the Antares name, creating a single identity to unify the brand across respective entities.
The well-known and well-regarded Antares brand – the name of QIC Global’s London and Asia-based Lloyd’s business – has been chosen to reflect the international nature of the wider group’s client base and global operations. QIC Global is part of the QIC Group, which is the largest insurance company in the Middle East.
Michael van der Straaten, CEO of QIC Global and Qatar Re, said: “I am extremely pleased to announce that, following a review, a rebrand will see QIC Global core companies adopt the Antares brand name, which better reflects the internationality of our operations and is more fitting for a growing specialty re/insurance business. Being independent of any geographic location, the Antares name provides us with greater flexibility to add new corporate entities and insurance related services, which will help facilitate further growth and our future success.”
