Insurer on the move

Top 50 UK insurer Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Company of Europe Limited (ANDIE) is relocating to new offices in Leadenhall Street this week as the company continues to grow and develop mobility solutions of the future.

ANDIE’s London office is the headquarters of its European operation, and encompasses the entire newly-refurbished seventh floor of the prestigious Hallmark Building at 52-56 Leadenhall Street EC3, bringing ANDIE’s portfolio of brands together under one roof for the first time.

The move follows ANDIE’s announcement last week of the proposed completion of its acquisition of global telematics pioneer insurethebox, which is the largest and longest established telematics company with over 3.5 billion miles of data and includes the ‘drive like a girl’ brand.

ANDIE’s office in London also houses Toyota Insurance Management Limited, a joint venture company through Toyota Financial Services (UK) PLC which aims to deliver excellence in insurance and reduce the cost of ownership of Toyota vehicles. The office also houses the brands Lexus Insurance Management; autosan, which provides insurance services via non-Toyota/Lexus dealerships as well as classic car insurance direct; and Motor Ichiban, a specialist Japanese brand, which ANDIE acquired on 1 January 2018 and which provides automotive insurance for Japanese expats working in the UK as a full Japanese language service.

Mike Swanborough, chief executive officer, said, ‘ANDIE’s new office marks an exciting phase in our European growth strategy as we continue to deliver tomorrow’s mobility solutions. ANDIE’s European headquarters has been in London for over 40 years, and by relocating to Leadenhall, we will continue to be at the forefront of the development of the mobility solutions of the future.’
