“Growing our third-party capital platform is an important strategic initiative for our company,” Bonneau said. “We are committed to further developing our current platform to provide aligned insurance-linked investment solutions for institutional investor clients, leveraging our deep underwriting and distribution capabilities. Growing this aligned capability will allow us to continue to develop and strengthen our relationships with our insurance clients and brokers. Andrew’s experience and track record in capital raising, structured finance, alternative investment assets, ILS operations, and governance, along with his broad network of contacts, will bring the added strength needed to continue to build our strengths in this important area.”
