Willkie client Zurich Insurance Group agrees to acquire the individual and group life insurance businesses and the long-term savings operations of EuroAmerica in Chile.

On April 20, it was announced that Willkie client Zurich Insurance Group, through its subsidiary in Chile, has entered into an agreement to acquire the individual and group life insurance businesses and the long-term savings operations of EuroAmerica in Chile. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals, will position Zurich in Chile as one of the leading insurers in the country in these insurance segments. It is expected to enable Zurich Chile to accelerate growth, increasing its market share in group and individual life insurance. It also strengthens its long-term savings business by increasing by four times the number of customers and complements the current value proposition.
