UK Regulatory Announcement


                            Update on Irish Issues

Further to recent press speculation, the RSA Board confirms it will receive at
its meeting on Wednesday 8^th January the PwC report into the financial and
regulatory reporting processes and controls within the Irish business and the
Group oversight of these alongside further assurance reviews commissioned by
the Board.

We remain confident in our view that the financial and claims irregularities
identified in November 2013 were isolated to Ireland.

Furthermore, RSA confirms, as previously announced, the impact of claims and
financial irregularities and the reserve review in Ireland at £72m and £128m
respectively; totalling a combined £200m.

A press release with further details will be released at 7.00am on Thursday
9^th January.
