Reply by Devere Group

deVere takes all complaints very seriously and has a team of fully qualified advisers who are dedicated to providing a high quality service. Having checked our records, we can see that no formal complaint has been made by either Mrs Preston or her husband, who is a joint policy holder. Furthermore, at no time has deVere received any of the clients’ monies, and as per their own admission, the monies were paid to Generali. All the forms and requirements to surrender the product are those of Generali. Mrs Preston has been made fully aware of the outstanding requirements from Generali which were provided directly to her husband by email on 17/07/18. As such, there is nothing deVere can do in this regard until either the client or her husband produces the necessary documentation in full. If you wish to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to email us on

My husband and I purchased a Generali "Vision Plan" #94035832 in Abu Dhabi through Devere Group, in July 2013. We are Americans who were both consulting in the UAE at the time.

For the past 9 weeks (starting on 5/21/18), we have been trying to cash out our policy, having been fully paid in all fees and having an account in good standing. Devere Group and Generali REFUSE to release the the full surrender value of our plan, despite us following every ridiculous instruction.

The Devere Acuma group in Abu Dhabi ( and

Tel: +971 2 509 0500, Mobile:+971 52 984 6139) required an ENORMOUS amount of forms and documentation, all originals with original signatures, to be couriered to Abu Dhabi. Evalyn and Jason received the documents, confirmed that the documents were all correct, and stated that they will forward the documents to Generali in Ireland. Then the Ireland HQs REFUSED to speak to us.

They received the documents and claimed that they were not the right documents. They (Thomas at international number 002539060222) further claimed that the plan we clearly have is illegal to purchase in the UAE. Therefore Devere broke the law selling it to us despite accepting our $3600US monthly payments for nearly 4 years. Thomas further stated that "he doesn't care what we were told." I think that is a side scam, b/c they are still asking for a completely different set of documents such as an original active lease, original utility bill, drivers' license, and a certified copy of my husband's passport...ALL TO PROVE OUR ADDRESS is what Thomas said.

I have DOZENS of emails to prove our experience with Generali and Devere. We are initiating a lawsuit against Generali and Devere for refusing to release the full surrender value of our policy.
