The terrorism team supports a wide range of clients ranging from individual insurers to terrorism-focused pools. Its agricultural expertise focuses on large carriers in the US and Canada, as well as regional writers in the same territory. Says the firm: “As our clients continue to look for ways to grow their business, we are increasingly capitalising on GC expertise across the globe to educate on and provide services for healthcare and life reinsurance, housing finance & mortgage credit reinsurance, marine and energy, mutual company specialty, reinsurance for the public sector, structured solutions, and surety and fidelity, as well as other lines.” Key executives Tony Fox, CEO and head of the Bermuda office; Chris Dart, managing director; Jenni Rowntree Estis, senior vice president.

TigerRisk PROPERTY Over the past eight years, reinsurance markets have become increasingly impressed with TigerRisk’s highly innovative analytics-driven primary reinsurance solutions. In the fall of 2014, TigerRisk brought that same innovation and creativity to Bermuda. “With the success of our retro operations in the US and UK, we expanded our risk management and analytic creativity to Bermuda to deliver better retro solutions and build more significant partnerships with capital providers and retro buyers,” said Marc Lauricella, TigerRisk partner and retro team leader. Alex Bridges, head of TigerRisk’s Hamilton office added: “We would characterise our entry into Bermuda as ‘disruptive’. TigerRisk has the same capabilities of the much larger brokers, and is well positioned to compete. We have an exceptional portfolio of clients, one of the industry’s most highly respected analytics teams coupled with marketchanging proprietary tools, and a strong capital markets team led by Tony Ursano in New York. “But our significant point of differentiation is that TigerRisk approaches every engagement with a fresh set of eyes and takes the time to truly understand a client’s needs to develop a bespoke solution with unique retro capacity that works more efficiently for our clients. “In addition, our capital markets & advisory team has been very successful in bringing new capital to the market, putting pressure on the traditional retro markets. The capital markets team has helped us find innovative ways to create more efficient use of non-traditional capital. Further, every engagement—not just the big ones—receives senior level attention.” Lauricella summed up: “Our global team approach is another major differentiator. Each Tiger client realises the synergetic strength of our analytics, capital markets reach, innovation, and market knowledge and relationships in the delivery of our retro solutions and execution. The Bermuda market has been very receptive to us and we look forward to working closely with our clients and markets to take advantage of this transformative time in our industry.” Key executives Alex Bridges (head of office); Andrew DiLoreto; Sophie Francis. “The capital markets team has helped us find innovative ways to create more efficient use of non-traditional capital.
