SPB, broker and fund manager and European leader in insurance and “affinity” services, has announced the creation of a new branch in Bordeaux Mérignac, at the Parc De Pelus.
Founded in Le Havre in 1965, the group currently employs 1,200 people and has a turnover of 200 million Euros and a hundred or so key accounts. In total, SPB manages around 40 million policyholders.
The Mérignac branch will be dedicated to provident funds, a totally new activity for the group. The products relate to personal coverage (dependency, funeral services, life insurance, etc.).
SPB should be recruiting 112 full-time employees, including customer advisers and managers.
Bordeaux Gironde Investissement provided the company with support in its set-up in the area.
