Tom Kliphuis, CEO of Athora Netherlands: “Today Athora Netherlands successfully issued a Tier 2 capital instrument, achieving the lowest ever coupon (2.250%) for this type of instrument from a Dutch insurer. The coupon-level reflects the strong confidence of the investment community in Athora and Athora Netherlands.
