The subsidiary located in Toronto is an approved coverholder of Lloyd’s.
Talecek noted Williams’ affluence of understanding working with managing general agents (MGAs) and defined it as a very profitable way since more business deals is being made with MGAs. As per Martin, Talecek said; “To find a candidate with a legal protection background was a distinct bonus, but that he has worked both in the UK market and here (Canada), almost since the concept of legal expenses insurance was introduced in Canada, makes Graham almost uniquely qualified and a great asset to the team.”
CEO, chairman and main shareholder of the ARAG Group, Paul-Otto Faßbender said in 2016 that Canada provides astonishingly interesting projections of expansion as legal insurance are generally unidentified there.
