Addressing his new role, Kalachian, said: “I am thrilled to join Vesttoo’s team.  Vesttoo has been shaking up the industry by being on the forefront of the changing ILS landscape and enabling alternative sources of capital to play a keyrole in the transfer of insurance risk beyond Nat Cat, which is sorely needed in our industry. It is this creative spirit, along with strong analytics, use of technology and a talented team that has me excited to join their ranks and help transform the (re)insurance sector.”

Alon Lifshitz, Chief Financial Engineer and Co-Founder of Vesttoo, added: “I’m pleased to announce the joining of Mr. Kalachian to our team. His joining comes at an opportune moment.
