London Market Operations Move to the Walkie Talkie

Growth Surge Sees Tokio Marine HCC International’s London Market Operations Move to the Walkie Talkie Building

London, 11 August 2022

Tokio Marine HCC International (TMHCCI) has announced that its London Market operations, including GCube, will move from their current, separate offices in to one consolidated location, on floor 6 of 20 Fenchurch Street, commonly known as the Walkie Talkie.


The move will happen in three phases. The first part, which is already underway, will see GCube, Marine Liability, Marine Hull, Marine Cargo and Energy make the move to their new premises.


The second part is scheduled for Q4 this year when all other London Market teams, US Credit and Underwriting Performance, will move to the Walkie Talkie.


The final phase will occur in Q1 2023 where a new broker trading floor will be located on floor 7.


In recent years, TMHCCI London Market operations has grown significantly with plans for further expansion necessitating the move to larger premises.


Commenting on the move, Simon Button, Chief Underwriting Officer for TMHCCI’s London Market business, said: “Our growth trajectory over the last few years has been as remarkable as it has been consistent, and as we have expanded, we have brought in more expertise and experience to support that growth.


“We need more space for our increasing headcount, and we want them to have the best facilities and working environment we can provide. Our Lime Street premises have served us well over the years, but we are excited to be making the move to the Walkie Talkie with our dedicated broker trading floor and we look forward to welcoming our broker partners to our new home.”
