The Portfolio Transfer will come into effect on the completion of the cross-border merger and registration of the establishment of the SE at the Commercial Register of Estonia. Notification on the completion of the merger (and thus also Portfolio Transfer) will be published separately.

Termination notice should be sent to email@example.com. Upon expiration of the termination term stated above, it is deemed that the policyholder consents with the transfer of rights and obligations deriving from the insurance agreement.
