The Insurance Breakfast in London’s One America Square marked a significant celebration of Gibraltar's prominence and focus on the insurance sector, and its enduring partnership with the United Kingdom.

The day commenced with an informal breakfast amongst attendees, a diverse assembly of insurance owners, executives and advisors, who gathered to kick-start this highly anticipated event.
