Uría, Cuatrecasas, Deloitte guide Bankinter’s bankassurance alliance with Liberty

Uría Menéndez (legal) and Deloitte Financial Advisory (financial) have advised Bankinter on its agreement with Liberty Seguros, counselled by Cuatrecasas, to jointly develop the insurance business through the company 'Bankinter Liberty Home and Auto'


Through this operation, subject to receiving the corresponding regulatory authorisations, Liberty acquires from Bankinter 50.01% of the company, already created and registered previously by the financial institution, with the bank holding the remaining 49.99%.

With this agreement, signed by the CEO of Bankinter, María Dolores Dancausa, and the CEO of Liberty Seguros, Juan Miguel Estallo, both entities undertake to work together in the field of bancassurance in the long term.

The products will be designed and developed with the expertise of Liberty Seguros and will be distributed exclusively through all Bankinter’s commercial networks, both face-to-face and remote, in Spain and Portugal, including EVO Banco, the Bankinter Group’s 100% digital entity.

The agreement, subject to the corresponding approval by the regulator, highlights Liberty’s high technological capabilities, its modular product strategy and its speed of adaptation, which, combined with Bankinter’s capacity for innovation and adaptation to the needs of consumers, will enable both companies to occupy a leading position in the market.
