SETANTA POLICYHOLDERS ARE being advised to arrange new motor insurance after a liquidator was appointed to the insurance company.

The company collapsed earlier this month and a liquidator was appointed yesterday.

On its website, the company said it has reached a conclusion that a “solvent run-off is no longer possible”.

The Central Bank announced the liquidator will now be responsible for the administration of the company’s assets and liabilities.

Our advice to Setanta policyholders is that they should arrange new motor insurance immediately.
