On 16th November 2017, members of Acquis’s management team attended Leaseurope’s workshop in Brussels on the European Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) – a directive which is due to be implemented throughout the European Union by 23rd February 2018. Representing Acquis at the workshop were Julien Gautier (European Business Development Manager) and Matt Salvage (Head of Client Management).

The workshop allowed Acquis to understand and exchange views with other insurance businesses and leasing companies on the most relevant IDD provisions and their implications for leasing. There was also a focus on the transposition of the new Directive across the EU and the relevant challenges the industry may face during the transposition period, together with the practical solutions that will be available.
