No. pages 18

In this note, we will give some background information on the so-called ‘woekerpolis’ affair. Three recent events could act as catalysts that could hopefully bring this whole affair to an end and thus deal with one of the biggest uncertainties the Dutch insurers have had to deal with in recent years. Although this solution could possibly require the insurers to take higher provisions, it would at least allow us to make a better assessment of what these companies are really worth.

  • Brief historic background
  • What makes a policy a 'woekerpolis'?
  • Who are exposed to these claims?
  • Both collectives and individuals claiming compensation
  • All going their separate ways
  • The damage so far
  • Why has this affair flared up again?
  • The situation for the listed insurers
  • So what’s next?
  • Dutch state has an interest too
  • Where does that leave us?

Nearly four months have passed since we published our initial report on the ‘woekerpolis’ affair. This note provides a condensed update of what has happened since. In brief, this whole affair could be heading towards a potential new climax: the European Court of Justice’s ruling which has been scheduled for April 29th. Maybe this can cast some light as to where things could go from there.



  • Summary and Conclusions

  • Brief recap

  • Consumentenbond joining the ranks

  • Activation: mixed signals

  • More court battles ahead?

  • So, where does this leave us?
