APG sells Inovita to Keylane

KEYLANE September 5, 2018

Press Release

Keylane increases position on the pension market and continues development of Inovita.

APG, the largest pension provider in the Netherlands, today sells their subsidiary Inovita (and pension administration system Lifetime) to Keylane, market leader in software solutions for the insurance and pension markets. The activities of software supplier Inovita no longer fit APG’s strategy.

APG will focus on their primary services, such as pension administration and asset management. Wim Henk Steenpoorte (APG Board of Directors): “We are confident that the interests of both Inovita and APG are managed well within Keylane, a company with a clear vision and growth strategy for Inovita. APG will remain a satisfied customer of Inovita.”
The acquisition means Inovita increases their product offer and innovation power. Richard Schouten and Jan Nikkels (Inovita Directors): “Within Keylane, we will continue to guarantee our customers continuity of our products and services. At the same time, we can develop even more decisively and grow both nationally and internationally.”

Keylane is happy to welcome a new member to the Keylane family: Keylane acquires Inovita to gain an advantage on the pension market and thus minimise the costs per policy in the pension administration. Ralf Timmer (CEO Keylane): “By joining forces with Inovita, we can increase our international presence on a consolidating European insurance and pension market.”
