Thursday, 19 January 2023, 7:44 pm

I see arch rivals at Bloomberg have finally decided to follow up little old Betaville's Part 9 Uncooked Alert about the Belgian insurer that this website published last month.

Hacks at Bloomie report that BE Group, a vehicle backed some ex Lazard, UBS and Credit Suisse bankers, has made a fresh approach for Ageas and is trying to get the financing together for a deal. Below is a link to the Bloomie tale:..
