On the sidelines of the Dubai World Insurance Congress (DWIC), DIFC Unplugged caught up with Marc Breuil, President of Asia and Middle East, at Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI). With emerging markets, emerging technologies and emerging customers key considerations for the insurance sector, we hear about why BHSI has chosen to launch their operations in the Middle East through their new offices in the DIFC.  

One of the biggest names in the Insurance sector, BHSI was established when Warren Buffet, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. announced the company was moving into commercial insurance in a substantial and everlasting way.  Now having expanded their footprint into 12 different jurisdictions, the company is creating the gold standard of insurance across the globe.
