Complex Made Simple

Q-Re renamed as Qatar Re

The former Q-Re LLC announced that it has changed its legal name to Qatar Reinsurance Company LLC. Going forward Qatar Reinsurance Company LLC will trade as Qatar Re.

Gunther Saacke, CEO of Qatar Re, said: “Over the course of the past 18 months our company has seen a fundamental transformation. We have significantly grown our book of business and established a global franchise with an emphasis on specialty lines. Our branding has to reflect this transition. We started off as a regional reinsurer. Going forward, our legal name and trade mark will highlight our roots in Qatar to which we owe one of our key competitive differentiators: an independent capital base, largely uncorrelated with global capital markets.”

Qatar Re is in the process of developing and implementing a new visual identity, so its website, email addresses, bank accounts, stationary, etc. will also change. Qatar Re’s legal and contractual obligations (originally underwritten by it as Q-Re LLC) will not, however, be affected by the name change.
