Following the receipt of regulatory approvals, QBE has announced it has completed the acquisition of CUNA Mutual’s Australian operations.
It’s an exciting milestone for QBE according to QBE Australia Asia Pacific Operation’s Chief Executive Vince McLenaghan: “QBE is pleased to be acquiring such a strong business platform and respects the mutual strength of relationships between CUNA and its customers. We are delighted to welcome the CUNA team to QBE and we look forward to working with them through this transition.”
National Manager at CUNA Peter Jamieson said the transaction combined the best of both businesses: “This move will allow CUNA to maximise its ability to deliver a value proposition that produces positive outcomes for all parties. Together with QBE, we will continue to identify the best outcomes for our valued partners and their members, and will keep them engaged through this process and beyond.”
The acquisition, first announced on 27 January 2011, will significantly increase QBE’s share of the Australian credit union and community-based financial institutions insurance market, and generate in excess of $80 million of gross written premium for QBE in 2011.
