Houthoff successfully represented Nationale Nederlanden (NN) in proceedings that were brought by the foundation Vereniging Woekerpolis.nl in relation to investment-linked insurance offered by NN. The court ruled that generally speaking NN had provided sufficient information on costs and premiums. It thus concurred with NN’s position that the provision of information to customers should be assessed against the regulations and system of standards that applied when the investment-linked insurance was offered. The court dismissed all of Vereniging Woekerpolis’s claims.
