Our Team

We have built an organisation that attracts people of only the highest calibre, with great experience and expertise.

Value Proposition in Non-Life and Life Origination:

Non-Life

  • Breadth of origination capabilities across insurance, reinsurance and retrocession.
  • Key relationships with brokers and cedents at all levels of the organisations.
  • Proprietary view of risk.
  • No close links to any insurance companies.

Life

  • Dedicated in-house Life actuarial, structuring and legal team.
  • Proactive origination approach that leverages a broad network of existing contacts within the insurance, reinsurance, consultancy and banking world.
  • 12-year track-record of completing bespoke, privately negotiated transactions.
  • Our team focusses on sourcing life ILS transactions with ‘pure’ biometric risks, not moving into non-core areas that would lower the decorrelation of our offering.

 

Operational Excellence – a Sustainable Competitive Advantage

  • Institutional quality platform.
  • Robust in-house operational team and infrastructure alongside rigorous analysis of potential investments and supported by extensive actuarial modelling capabilities.
  • Comprehensive compliance framework.
