The first members of the team, which is set to expand further in the near future, have now been revealed as the firm looks to move forwards during a period of market volatility.

Among the new arrivals at the firm is Javier Rivas, who takes on the role of Senior Director, Capital Markets EU. Previously, Rivas has served in senior roles at global reinsurer Swiss Re, Credit Suisse, and broker WTW, and brings more than 17 years of capital markets and reinsurance experience to Vesttoo.

Additionally, Marcus Astrom, a former Head of Sales Middle East & Asia at East Capital, has been named as Director-Business Development Capital Markets, focusing on UAE and the Middle East. Astrom brings more than 16 years of capital markets experience to the role.

Finally, Jan Vilhelmsen has been appointed as the company’s new Senior Director with responsibility for Capital Markets in northern Europe. Previously, Vilhelmsen served as a Managing Director at EWM Capital, and brings over two decades of capital markets sales experience to Vesttoo.

Sola commented: “I am extremely pleased with the global team we are building. Javier, Marcus and Jan each have a deep understanding of the products and institutional investors that play in our capital markets space. They will continue to build on the momentum and high degree of interest that we are seeing for Vesttoo’s alternative investment products. ILS is one of the few uncorrelated investment strategies, and developing its non-cat segments with the support of cutting-edge technology is a game-changer.”

Yaniv Bertele, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-Founder of Vesttoo, added: “We have created a highly professional, highly experienced team to lead Vesttoo’s global sales. While the market is experiencing a period of volatility, we move ahead. Jan, Marcus, and Javier bring a tremendous amount of professional knowledge to the table, and with it, they’ll surely propel Vesttoo’s growth.”
