Monument Re through its subsidiary Monument Assurance Belgium (MAB) has completed the Closing of the acquisition of the entire insurance portfolio and personnel of Integrale. All the preconditions for the conclusion of this transaction have therefore been fulfilled. This acquisition which fits perfectly with Monument Re’s growth strategy is good news for policyholders who will be able to benefit from the continuity of professional services. Integrale's staff will transfer into the Monument Group and be able to enjoy the advantages associated with a growing insurance company in Belgium and beyond.

On 15th December, Monument Re completed the Closing of the acquisition of Integrale's entire insurance portfolio and personnel. This means that the relevant assets and liabilities of Integrale's balance sheet were transferred to Monument Re’s Belgian subsidiary MAB.
