Blasts & News
There are many changes taking place in the Long Term Care and Disability Insurance industries these days. The information comes from many different sources, and it can be quite confusing at times to put all the pieces together and make sense of it all. At NJLTC we send out several email newsletters , "Blasts" as we call them, a month. We keep our clients, brokers, and producers informed of all the relevant news, topics, and product updates that take place in our industry. Feel free to browse our archive of Blasts and News articles.
Genworth Merger Update Jun 11, 2018
You may have seen the news over the weekend…the CFIUS committee has finally completed its review of the proposed transaction with Oceanwide and concluded that there are no unresolved national security concerns. This clearance by CFIUS is a significant achievement in the transaction process so we wanted to let you know as soon as we could.
While concluding the CFIUS review is an important step towards closing the transaction with Oceanwide, please keep in mind that there are still approvals needed from several other regulators in the U.S., China, and other jurisdictions. So, they still have additional steps to achieve before the transaction can be completed, but nevertheless, this is a significant milestone. Today, Genworth is one step closer to making it a reality.
