The information in this table is based on the ABI's General Insurance Annual Return 2004, updated with known changes.

The companies listed are ABI members writing business through subsidiaries, branches and agencies of UK companies in the countries listed. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are UK branches or subsidiaries of foreign-owned companies using the UK branch/subsidiary as a base for writing business into Europe. Though a large number of companies are foreign-owned, they account for just 14.2% of the £5.3 billion general business premium income written in Europe by all these companies.
