    New role: Hanni Ali, who will head up Hamilton ILS (Photograph supplied)

Hamilton Insurance Group today announced that its insurance-linked securities platform has a new name and a new lead executive.

Formerly called Hamilton Capital Partners, the platform is now Hamilton ILS. Hanni Ali moves from his role as senior vice-president, risk and analytics, Hamilton Re, to the newly established role of senior vice-president, strategic partnerships. Mr Ali will report directly to Jonathan Reiss, president, strategic partnerships.

Mr Reiss said the new role for Mr Ali and the new name for the ILS platform more accurately reflected the company’s objectives for the strategic partnerships unit.

“Hanni’s previous position touched all aspects of our business in Bermuda, including our third-party capital initiative, and he’s quickly established himself as a trusted and knowledgeable adviser to our current and potential investors,” Mr Reiss said.

“In particular, Hanni played a key role in the recent renewal of our sidecar, Turing Re, and, among other initiatives, will coordinate our future cat bond placements. We believe that under Hanni’s management, Hamilton ILS has the potential to develop into a preferred choice for investors.”

Mr Ali joined Hamilton Re in July 2014, securing a promotion to SVP, risk and analytics in May 2019. Previously, he worked for two years with Allied World Assurance Company where he was responsible for developing pricing and portfolio accumulation, reporting and analytics systems, and the pricing of inward and outwards reinsurance contracts.

Between 2008 and 2012, Mr Ali worked for Montpelier Re where he was involved in the establishment of Montpelier’s Lloyd’s Syndicate 5151 and associated Managing Agent, supporting underwriting and risk management of binders, treaty, retro, direct and facultative business.

Before entering reinsurance, Mr Ali worked for four years in London’s financial-services sector, developing equity, commodity and foreign exchange pricing models. He also ran his own start-up, developing high-performance computing systems.

Mr Ali holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Imperial College, London, England. He is an Associate of the Royal College of Science, an Associate Member of the Institute of Physics and an associate of the Royal Meteorological Society.
