May 8, 2023

Constellation Insurance Holdings, Inc. (Constellation), a leading insurance holding company backed by institutional investors CDPQ and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board (Ontario Teachers’), announced today that its Chilean subsidiary Ohio National Seguros de Vida S.A. has entered into an agreement for the acquisition of the Zurich Insurance Group (Zurich) annuity portfolio of approximately US$2.6 billion in reserves held in Chile.

Since 1993, Ohio National Seguros de Vida S.A. has been providing life insurance solutions to protect individuals, families, and businesses across Chile. It has a strong solvency position and holds local credit ratings of “AA” from both ICR (A Moody’s affiliate) and Fitch Chile with total local reserves of approximately US$1.1 billion, as of December 2022.

Zurich is a leading multi-line insurer serving people and businesses in more than 200 countries and territories. Founded 150 years ago, Zurich entered the Chilean market in 1991 when it acquired a majority participation on La Chilena Consolidada, a local insurance company founded in 1853.

“Today’s announcement marks another important step for Constellation, as we execute our growth strategy across segments through organic growth and inorganic investments,” affirmed Anurag Chandra, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Constellation. “Together with our US life insurance and annuity segments, our Latin American operations are increasingly forming an integral part of the organization.”

“This significant portfolio acquisition furthers our goal to expand our Chilean market position,” noted David Azzarito, Senior Vice President for Latin America, and Board President of Ohio National Seguros de Vida S.A. “Our Chilean company will emerge stronger financially. It also better positions us to service our policyholders; with nearly US$4 billion in local assets.”

The transaction is subject to customary conditions including regulatory approvals.
