Hopefully not a warning of worse to come?

There were similar issues with insurer HIH in the year or more leading up to it’s collapse.

And FAI before them, and whom HIH took on the clients and debts of after the FAI fail. Then Allianz I think stepped in to take the clients but not the debts from memory of my interactions with them all. A collapsing house of cards until Allianz shed the debts as part of their takeover/rescue.
