From September 2nd, 2019, eligible policyholders of British American Insurance Company Ltd (BAICO) will receive a settlement of 4% of agreed claims. This follows settlements of 10% made in 2017.
Brian Glasgow – Partner at KPMG and The Judicial Manager of BAICO last week announced that approximately EC$30 million is to be released across the Eastern Caribbean to make a further distribution of 4% on agreed Claims making a cumulative total of 14% paid to policyholders to date.
This amount of EC$30 million was obtained mainly from litigation efforts, and the sale of property including the sale of the British American property in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
