As a result of the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union (“EU”) (commonly known as “Brexit”), AIG Europe Limited (“AEL”) has carried out a restructuring of its insurance operations in Europe in order to ensure it has the most appropriate structure from which to serve policyholders and claimants in the UK and across Europe after Brexit. 

We are pleased to inform you that on 1 December 2018, in accordance with applicable law, your insurance policy was transferred from AEL to AIG Europe S.A. (“AIG Europe”), as a result of a portfolio transfer between the two companies (the “Transfer”). AIG Europe is incorporated in Luxembourg and authorized by the Luxembourg Minister of Finance and subject to the Commissariat aux Assurances, with registered address of 35D Avenue J. F. Kennedy, L-1855, Luxembourg, and registered with R.C.S. Luxembourg number B 218806. AIG Europe is a member of the AIG Group.

The Transfer was implemented by a combined insurance business transfer scheme under Part VII of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and a cross border merger under Directive 2017/1132 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2017 relating to certain aspects of company law. The Transfer received all required regulatory approvals by the competent authorities in the United Kingdom and Luxembourg and was approved by the High Court of England and Wales.

AEL’s obligations towards policyholders, beneficiaries and other stakeholders will not change as a result of the Transfer. The Transfer will have no effect on the cover provided by current policies issued by AEL.
