Insurance Linked Securities & Captive Solutions

Insurance linked securities (ILS) and captive insurance solutions are complex structures that require specialist knowledge at every level.

Providing confidence to clients in complex transactions  

Global insurance is a multi-billion dollar industry that is constantly evolving and adapting to prevailing market conditions. ILS and captive solutions introduce needed capital and increase capacity for the insurance market. We leverage our broad cross-jurisdictional knowledge, insurance expertise and experience to untangle the complexity of ILS and captives for clients in Bermuda and other jurisdictions. This provides more certainty and confidence for our clients when entering into complex transactions.

What we do - services spanning the entire life cycle 

Our team provide a full suite of administration and fiduciary services to the ILS and captive market from our Bermuda, Cayman and BVI offices, ensuring that all structures remain compliant with applicable regulations in each jurisdiction. We add value throughout the life cycle, from incorporation and licensing, to unwinding and voluntary liquidations when the structure ends its natural life - precision and technical expertise has been the hallmark of our service offerings to this important global industry.

Our Bermuda based ILS team has been involved in a significant share of ILS transactions in the market, and we are an important provider of corporate services to the captive industry, with one of the largest market shares. We work seamlessly with all the major insurance managers and intermediaries to provide a complete solution to large, multinational enterprises and smaller companies.
