Freedom Insurance in voluntary suspension

Freedom Insurance Group has entered a voluntary suspension on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) acknowledging that it is not in a position to make an announcement about its trading position.

The company, which was the subject of criticism in the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Commission announced late last year that it was ceasing new sales, changing senior management and reducing staff and operating costs.

It later announced that its bid to acquire St Andrews Insurance from Bank of Queensland had failed.

However, it said it was not able to specify with certainty when that announcement would be made.
