Brussels, 23 January 2013– Delta Lloyd, a prominent financial services provider offering life insurance, general insurance, asset management and banking products and services, already listed on NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam, today celebrated its listing in Brussels.

Delta Lloyd Life, active in the Belgian market since 2001, boasts a strong market position. The strategic focus of Delta Lloyd Life is on pensions and its expertise in this niche market. Its innovative pension and life insurance solutions are mainly distributed through intermediaries, bank branches and tied agents.

The cross listing confirms the importance that Delta Lloyd attaches to Belgium as its second home market, and reinforces its profile and visibility as a player in the Belgian banking and pensions market. In addition, it will also strengthen the group`s strategic flexibility. The listing serves to diversify the shareholder base and create broader access to the capital market.
