RSA part VII transfer in response to Brexit

As a result of the UK’s prospective withdrawal from the European Union (EU) (commonly known as “Brexit”), Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc (RSAI), is taking the necessary steps to establish a new legal entity in Luxembourg, RSA Luxembourg S.A. (RSAL).

RSAI intends to transfer certain of its insurance and reinsurance business from RSAI to RSAL. These changes are required to maintain a viable operating model and to continue to service RSAI’s European business. If the proposed transfer does not take place and the UK does withdraw from the EU, then it may not be legally permissible for RSAI to pay valid claims in respect of European risks.

Notice is hereby given that the Claimants made an application on 3 August 2018 to the High Court of Justice of England and Wales (Court) under Part VII of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) (Application) for an order sanctioning an insurance business transfer scheme (Scheme).

The below documents provide important information about the proposed transfer. These documents are available in English, French, German, Spanish and Dutch.

The Application is directed to be held before a judge at the Rolls Building, 7 Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1NL on 29 November 2018. If approved by the Court, the Scheme will become effective immediately after midnight (UK time) on 1 January 2019. This website will be refreshed as new information is available.
