Information regarding life insurance policies intermediated by Optima Bank
June 24, 2016
The recent bankruptcy of Optima Bank, and the termination of Optima’s insurance brokerage registration, in no way affect the assets held within Lombard International Assurance clients’ life insurance policies where Optima acted as broker/distributor. None of the assets or financial holdings of Lombard International Assurance or of its clients are held in custody by Optima.
Optima Bank is no longer registered as an insurance broker and can no longer service Lombard International Assurance clients in that capacity. The intermediation agreement between Lombard International Assurance and Optima Bank has therefore been terminated. Lombard International Assurance is in close contact with Belgian policyholders and is ensuring continuity of service for them.
As announced in the press release of 10 February, Lombard International Assurance also intends to open a dedicated Belgian branch in Brussels, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to clients in Belgium. This follows the recent launch of offices in Paris and New York, two other growth centres among the more than 20 markets in which we operate worldwide.
Lombard International Assurance is committed to providing compliant life assurance solutions in every jurisdiction in which it operates.
