Horseshoe Group is Trading Risk magazine’s Market Facilitator of the Year
Insurance-linked securities provider Horseshoe Group was recognised as the 2013 ‘Market Facilitator of the Year’ by
Trading Risk magazine. It is the second time the company has received the honour.
Horseshoe Group is an independent insurance manager dedicated to the reinsurance and ILS market.
A press release from the Horseshoe Group announcing the award stated: “The Market Facilitator of the Year Award acknowledges excellence and achievement in the insurance-linked capital markets sector and is given to the company that has done the most to further the development of the Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS) market.”
They offer management, transforming and advisory services to insurers and reinsurers, reinsurance transformers, catastrophe bonds, sidecars, dedicated reinsurance funds, hedge funds and private equity firms, Lloyd’s affiliates and investment banks.
Their press release quotes Andre Peres, CEO and founder of the Horseshoe Group, who stated: “Receiving this award is a great honour, especially considering the calibre of the other finalists in this category. We are delighted to be recognised for the second time as the leading facilitator in the insurance convergence market by acting as an enabler in this sector.”
The award is determined by an independent panel of industry leaders, who chose Horseshoe Group for the award after reviewing nominations from other leading ILS market facilitators around the world, stated the release.
“Horseshoe Group was selected on the basis that it has cemented its position as a key convergence specialist insurance manager, transformer and adviser. In addition, the judging panel recognised the fact that Horseshoe Group undertook the formation and management of a number of investor-sponsored Special Purpose Insurers (SPIs), the significance of its transformer, Horseshoe Re Limited, to key market investors globally as well as its joint-venture ILS Fund Services (with Bermuda-based ISIS Fund Services) to provide specialised fund administration to ILS Funds.”
The award was presented at the Trading Risk Awards ceremony at The Underglobe in London on June 20, 2013.
The Horseshoe Group was the recipient of this award in 2010 as well as a finalist in 2012.
Horseshoe has offices in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and Ireland.
