Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) has opened an office in Paris after getting its insurance license from French regulatory authorities.

The business will immediately offer property, casualty, and executive and professional lines underwriting services.

François-Xavier d’Huart, previously Axa XL’s head of client and broker management, has been appointed Country Manager to oversee the business.

Mr d’Huart will report to London-based Chris Colahan, who was the insurer’s President for Australia and New Zealand from 2015 before being named last year as BHSI’s President for Europe.
