The Bermuda-headquartered Horseshoe Group has announced the appointment of Jean-Bernard Crozet as Senior Vice President – Advisory Services and Head of London Office.
The new role will involve working with Horseshoe’s fund services group on valuation and transparency reporting.
Crozet joins from MS Amlin where he served as London Head of Underwriting Modelling. He brings with him over 20 years’ experience, having starting out in 1994 at PSA Finance in London.
“JB’s experience in building strong actuarial and underwriting practices at several well-respected institutions, along with his client relationships around the world, will help further deepen Horseshoe’s talent pool” said Andre Perez, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Horseshoe.
“His leadership and expertise, especially in the property catastrophe space is an excellent fit with our specialty in the ILS space, and I’m delighted that he is joining the Horseshoe Group.”
“This is the third time JB and I will be working together, I have tremendous respect for his capabilities and expertise and I look forward to working with him again,” added Perez.
Commenting on his appointment, Crozet said, “I could not be more thrilled to join Horseshoe at this exciting time in the Group’s growth trajectory.
“Horseshoe is uniquely positioned to provide independent ILS related advice & services to leading ILS Funds as well as insurance and reinsurance companies, and I look forward to helping expand our overall presence in Europe.”
Crozet will take over actuarial and insurance advisory duties from Kathy Garrigan, who has relocated from Bermuda to the U.S. and will remain working for Horseshoe until mid- September.
“Kathy has laid down good foundations for valuation and reporting standards for the ILS funds we administer,” added Perez. “We look forward to having JB build on that foundation.”
