Re/insurer Premia Holdings has announced the formation of Elevation Re, a sidecar vehicle intended to provide collateralised reinsurance support for its activities in the global P&C run-off market.
This move will allow Premia to support run-off reinsurance opportunities with additional capacity and allows investors in Elevation Re to also participate.
Elevation Re has raised over $265 million in initial commitments from third-party institutional investors.
“I am very pleased that leading institutional investors quickly grasped that the outstanding team we have assembled, coupled with the track record we have achieved over the last four years, makes Elevation Re a compelling investment opportunity,” said Bill O’Farrell, Chief Executive Officer of Premia.
“This transaction brings our total managed capital to over $900 million and we look forward to deploying this capacity into thoughtful solutions for our clients.”
TigerRisk Capital Markets & Advisory acted as exclusive structuring and placement agent on the transaction.
Sidley Austin LLP and Conyers Dill & Pearman acted as deal counsel and Mayer Brown LLP acted as legal counsel for the investors.
