Financial strength of International Financial Group Limited (IFGL) praised by AKG

IFGL has been confirmed as "one of the leading players in the offshore market" by independent actuaries AKG.

In their report for 2017, AKG said: "AKG considers IFGL to be a financially strong standalone operation with very strong operational characteristics." It referred to IFGL as "one of the leading players in the offshore market".

And AKG has once again awarded IFGL-owned RL360 and RL360 Services a B+ for financial strength, the highest financial strength rating of any international life company.

RL360 and RL360 Services retained 4 star service ratings, with the report saying that in the last year "RL360 appears to have maintained its service levels, while also working on the integration of RL360 Services".

In addition, both RL360 and RL360 Services received 4 stars for image and strategy, plus business performance.

RL360 Marketing Director Simon Barwell said: "It is gratifying to see AKG acknowledging the strength and success of RL360, RL360 Services and IFGL following an extremely productive period for us. We've worked hard to grow the business and to do our best for our policyholders.

"The coming year will be a particularly busy one. Like all international life companies, we will need to be proactive in our response to changing regulations worldwide.

"These are exciting times for us, which will bring with them the kind of challenges we relish."
