Further to the move to Luxembourg, the company announced it would establish Aioi Nissay Dowa Europe (ADE HD) as a holding company in Britain in February 2018, as well as Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance (UK) a new UK-based insurance company in September 2018.

Both the new UK insurer and the unit moving to Luxembourg will be subsidiaries of the new UK-based holding company.
Aioi join the likes of, AIG, CNA Hardy, FM Global, Liberty, Hiscox, RSA and Tokio Marine in selecting the Grand-Duchy as the location of post-Brexit EU bases.
