Important Brexit Communication - for UK Customers

You have an insurance policy underwritten by SureStone Insurance. This communication to you sets out the action Surestone is taking to ensure continuity of coverage following Brexit.

SureStone Insurance dac trading as SureStone Insurance is registered in Ireland (Company No: 340407) and is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland,  (reference number C33637). Its registered office is Merrion Hall, Strand Road, Dublin 4, D04 P6C4.

Surestone currently provides insurance to you as one of its UK customers on a cross-border basis through what is referred to as a “passporting” regime.  

Passporting refers to the regulation of financial services carried out on a cross-border basis. If a firm is authorised to undertake activities by the regulator of one EU member state, it can apply for a “passport” to carry out those activities in other EU jurisdictions without needing further authorisation.

As there is continuing uncertainty regarding the UK’s future relationship with the EU,  Surestone wish to take this opportunity to  provide you with important details in relation to its plans in preparation for Brexit, in particular dealing with the position that may arise in the event  of a “no-deal Brexit”.

The UK Government has announced that, in the event of a “no deal Brexit”, it will introduce a Temporary Permissions Regime for inbound passporting EEA firms.

Surestone Insurance dac has received notification for entry into the Temporary Permissions Regime from the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA).

This regime will allow Surestone to continue to carry out regulated business in the UK for a period of up to 3 years, if the UK leaves the EU in October 2019 under a “no-deal Brexit”. 

Your policy will continue to underwritten by Surestone and you will experience no difference in the day to day management of your policy.   

Prior to the expiry of the temporary permissions regime period, Surestone will put in place measures to make the necessary application for authorisation to continue to service its UK clients into the future.

There is no additional action necessary for you. This communication is to advise you of what is happening. These arrangements mean that Surestone can continue to serve and work with its UK customers with  minimal disruption. If you do have questions or want any further clarification you can contact your broker or alternatively you can contact us at [email protected]
