Gideon Benari, Editor, Solvency II Wire, said: “The launch of the French language service is a significant milestone in the development of Solvency II Wire as a leading authority on Solvency II. The service will promote the site’s content to smaller and medium size firms in French speaking markets, where there is a growing demand for high quality free information in the run-up to the implementation deadline of 1 January 2016.” The launch of the service marks a strategic development in the site’s growth and its importance as a resource for European insurers.
