We would like to thank our friends and business partners from all parts of the world for being our guests at this year’s Summer Lounge.

Hamburg, 5 September 2019 – Traditionally every first Thursday in September is the date of the German P&I Summer Lounge. Its 13th edition once again attracted more than 200 guests from all areas of the international shipping and insurance industry to enjoy the familiar relaxed atmosphere for mingling, networking and professional exchange in the venue directly at the banks of the river Elbe. And yet, the popular event marked a fresh start.

Instead of Hanseatic Underwriters being the host of the late summer barbecue event in the recent years, this year it was the team of Thomas Miller Specialty P&I (TMS P&I) who invited for the event. Following the sale of Thomas Miller Specialty GmbH (the company behind Hanseatic Underwriters) to the Thomas Miller Group, the well-known insurance experts of “Hanseatic P&I” now operate under this brand name.

The combined team of colleagues from London and Hamburg showed united presence and consistently gave the event a new look with the colours of the new brand.

Both Tobias Braun, Managing Director of the now renamed Thomas Miller Specialty GmbH, and Hugo Wynn-Williams, Chairman of the Thomas Miller Group, expressed in their welcome speech to the guests how much potential the merging of the teams in Hamburg and London offers.

The Hamburg location will be further strengthened by their additional specialist colleagues in the mother company in London and by the backing of the strong Tomas Miller Group as such.

The Thomas Miller Group enjoys with the Hamburg office a fully operational, permanent and strategic base within the EU after the forthcoming Brexit. Hugo Wynn-Williams pointed out, that it is a kind of homecoming for Thomas Miller whose roots go back to the German founder Thomas Müller.

The signals for Hamburg are therefore “full steam ahead”…
