If your annuity has transferred to Rothesay Life Plc.

We agreed to sell and transfer a significant part of our annuity business to Rothesay Life plc (Rothesay). The High Court approved the transfer of annuity business from Scottish Equitable plc to Rothesay Life plc on 15 June 2017 and in accordance with the terms of the Scheme, the policies transferred to Rothesay Life plc on 30 June 2017 (Transfer Date). 

The transfer will not affect the way in which your policy will be administered, although provision of the administration services has moved from Scottish Equitable to Rothesay Life’s administration teams.  

Rothesay Life plc have now written to all transferred policyholders with new contact details and if you have any questions (including as to whether you have received their welcome letter) relating to your annuity then please contact Rothesay directly.
