Apex (Portugal) is a new proposition for expatriates combining a life assurance policy with a range of investment options designed to suit their needs.

The product launch is an exciting development for our Group, key advisers and clients.

Speaking at the launch, Paul Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of Utmost Group said ‘I am delighted to officially launch our new Apex (Portugal) product. During the product development stage, we listened to our advisers and clients and their feedback was very important in terms of shaping our overall proposition. Apex (Portugal) includes many attractive features such as new charging structures, online access through a secure site as well as a wide range of investment options. This is the first of a number of planned product launches in Europe and represents a key milestone for our Group.’

In other recent developments, Fitch has also affirmed Utmost International’s three main operating entities, Utmost PanEurope dac, Utmost Limited and Utmost Worldwide Limited, Insurer Financial Strength (IFS) ratings at ‘A’ (Strong) with Stable Outlooks.
