CLICO POLICYHOLDERS will lose out on more than half of their investment under the plan recently proposed by judicial manager Deloitte Consulting Limited. Details of the $400 million loss are contained in the judicial manager’s 13-page update to the High Court,  a copy of which the SUNDAY SUN has obtained. “All policyholders, traditional and EFPAs [executive flexible premium annuities] would have their liability of $837 million written down to $441 million, representing a loss of approximately $400 million,” stated the document,  which indicated that  the write-down amount represented the current value  of CLICO International Life  (CIL) assets – $288 million  of which are in Barbados. “The loss would be applied equitably across all policyholder types so that the restructured traditional business would  have total liability of $177 million  and the EFPA would have total liability of $264 million.”
