The Hanover Insurance Company – ECRA Insurance Business Transfer


The Insurance Business Transfer (IBT) of a portfolio of The Hanover Insurance Company (“Hanover”) reinsurance policies to National Legacy Insurance Company (“NLIC”) a wholly-owned subsidiary of R&Q Insurance Holdings Ltd, was approved by the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner on August 8, 2023. The transfer was approved under the Insurance Business Transfer Act (36.O.S. 1681-1688) (“The IBT Act”). The policies relate to Hanover’s involvement as a member of the Excess & Casualty Reinsurance Association pool (“ECRA”).

Modelled on the successful Part VII transfer process in the UK and EU, Oklahoma’s IBT legislation provides a mechanism for insurers to legally transfer reinsurance business to another insurance company following consultation with stakeholders and a Court hearing. Below are links to all documents included with the petition seeking judicial approval. The petition was filed with the Court on August 25, 2023.
