Fortis today announced that it has launched a new life insurance company - Fortis Life Insurance - in Russia.

Fortis Life Insurance will focus primarily on three core products. These are Education Plans and Family Protection Plans aimed at individual customers - which will be sold over the internet and the telephone - and a Corporate Pension Plan distributed via large corporate clients to their employees.

Peer van Harten, CEO of Fortis Insurance, comments: "In line with our strategy of developing our insurance model internationally based on multi-channel distribution, thereby increasing our presence outside our domestic markets, the launch of our insurance activities in Russia is a major step forward in one of today's biggest and most promising markets. The Russian insurance market is indeed one of the fastest growing ones on the Eurasian continent, with a population that is clearly looking for solid, long-term savings solutions. We are very excited to be starting our greenfield operations and putting the Fortis brand on Russia's insurance map."
