Rob Bredahl, who resigned from reinsurer Third Point Re only a few days ago, has already resurfaced as the new President and Chief Operating Officer of reinsurance brokerage, risk and capital strategic advisory TigerRisk Partners.
Bredahl will join TigerRisk as from the middle of June and in addition to the executive roles will also take a seat on the firms board.
His background across reinsurance broking, underwriting, capital markets and investment banking, as well as experienced gained at a total-return specialist reinsurer, will all assist TigerRisk as it continues to grow its platform and reach.
“TigerRisk has achieved its remarkable growth by challenging the status quo,” commented CEO Rod Fox. “We are excited to have Rob join our team. He is a sophisticated operator and is at the forefront of the intersection of risk and capital.”
“No broker/advisor is better positioned to navigate the ever-evolving market and develop new ways to match risk and capital,” explained Bredahl. “As the reinsurance broker market continues to consolidate, insurers, reinsurers and investors want financially sophisticated alternatives to the few mega brokers. I look forward to deploying TigerRisk’s excellent reinsurance, investment banking and advisory experts for the benefit of clients. TigerRisk has built a great firm with a great culture – I am excited to be a part of it.”
Most recently, Bredahl worked at Third Point Reinsurance, a firm he was a co-founder of in 2012 and held roles including Chief Underwriting Officer, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, then becoming CEO and President. His resignation from Third Point Re was announced on May 9th.
Bredahl gained a significant amount of his experience in his time working at reinsurance broker Aon Benfield and before the acquisition Benfield itself.
He held the role of Chief Executive Officer of Aon Benfield Securities, Aon’s Investment Banking and insurance-linked securities (ILS) groups, as well as President of the Americas division of Aon Benfield.
Before Aon’s acquisition of Benfield in November 2008, Bredahl was Chief Executive Officer of Benfield U.S. Inc. and of Benfield Advisory.
He joined Benfield in March 2002, prior to which he served as Chief Executive Officer of Inreon PLC and Managing Director and Head of U.S. Derivative Sales for Barclays Capital.
