(LIA SA) (Luxembourg), Lombard International Life Assurance Company (Bermuda) Ltd. (Bermuda) and Lombard International Life Ltd. (Bermuda). Concurrently, AM Best has maintained the under review with negative implications status for the Long-Term ICR of “bbb-” (Good) of LIA Holdings Limited (United Kingdom), a non-operating holding company.

The under review with negative implications status reflects the ongoing uncertainty as to the potential impact on LIA Holdings Limited’s balance sheet strength of a review by the Italian tax authorities into the Italian business written by LIA SA.
