Monument Completes Acquisition From Ethias

October 4, 2018

Monument Re has, through its European subsidiary Laguna Life DAC, completed the acquisition of a run-off portfolio of flexible premium retail life insurance contracts from Ethias S.A., known as the FIRST A Portfolio.

In accordance with the authorisation by the National Bank of Belgium, the FIRST A portfolio has transfered, as of the 28th of September 2018, into Laguna Life DAC in Ireland with the terms and conditions unchanged except for the loss of Belgian state guarantee. Ireland does not maintain an equivalent system of guarantee.

Laguna Life DAC offers a new and final opportunity to all the transferred policyholders to surrender their FIRST Account with a bonus. If policyholders choose to surrender before the 7th of December 2018, they will receive a bonus in addition to the value of their FIRST Account.

Manfred Maske, CEO of Monument Re Group, and Kieran Hayes, CEO of Monument Insurance, said that “We are pleased to announce the completion of the cross-border transfer of the FIRST A portfolio into Laguna Life DAC. Our Ireland and Benelux consolidation strategy has real momentum and we are looking forward to continued growth. It has been a pleasure to work with Ethias throughout this transaction.”
