EU Referendum statement

"Even though the British people have chosen to leave the EU, the UK is a key market for our business globally. While some customers may be worried about what this means for their policies or investments, we remain committed to our customers, distributors, communities and employees in the UK."

"We are a global insurer operating in over 170 countries and territories, and support the EU as a facilitator of free and open international trade. We saw Britain as an integral part of this and believed the EU to be stronger when it includes the UK."

"The process of the UK leaving the EU is likely to take years, so at the moment it's far too soon to say what all the effects will be across our business. We have established a team to follow this closely and will provide information to customers, distributors and employees as the process evolves."
