A pan-European player
Kereis decided to support its partners Europe-wide to enable them to propose a solid service offer to their customers. Now established in 7 European countries, Kereis knows how to adapt to national differences.
In each country, we refer to a portfolio of key accounts to which multi-country agreements with banks and risk bearers are added. We therefore have the support of the interconnected European back-office platforms in Nantes, Milan, Barcelona and Düsseldorf. Lastly, we have a standalone platform in Barcelona dedicated to consumer credit claims management in all European countries.
Local root, global vision.
We are progressively moving away from identifying as a French player with offices in Europe. We are now a pan-European player due to the adoption of an industrial vision and due to a number of commercial successes. We have also shared a number of support functions: back-office platform, IT & transformation, conformity, insurer monitoring, actuarial work, financial management, etc.
We also sought long-term European agreements with our clients. With the opening of our Portugal office in 2022, we are continuing to expand our European sites to offer local services to distributors and insurers, using our knowledge of the European market.
Present in 7 European countries
The inauguration of our office in Portugal in May 2022, took the number of countries served by Kereis to seven. Five of these countries benefit from local branches: Italy (Milan), Spain (Madrid and Barcelona), Germany (Düsseldorf and Ravensburg), Portugal (Lisbon), Belgium (Liège and 11 officies) and France. To these can be added Austria, operated from Germany. We communicate with our customers in ten languages.
Kereis in France
In France, Kereis has officies in Paris, Nantes, Lille, Annecy, Aix-les-Bains, Villeneuve-Loubet and Angoulême, within the different Group subsidiaries. These locations ensure proximity to our customers and our partners and demonstrates a strong local presence and a desire to offer local services.
