RICHARD: Well, granted the European insurance market still needs some restructuring but it’s growing at a remarkable rate. What am I basing it on? Well, Clive, surely you’ve seen the latest Eurostat. Yes, I’ve got it right in front of me. [whispers to Lorelai] Eurostat!
Eurostat is the statistical office of the European Union, located in Luxembourg, and first established in 1953. It publishes Europe-wide statistics, and Lorelai brings her father one of their publications for reference.
Richard quotes the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Netherlands as three insurance markets to keep an eye on, with the Netherlands “about to go through the roof”, apparently.
