Bermudian-based Essent Group has expanded its collateralised mortgage reinsurance protection with a $333.84 million insurance-linked securities issuance.

The company’s subsidiary, Essent Guaranty, made the issuance through its Bermudian special purpose insurer Radnor Re 2019-2 Ltd, alternative risk transfer news website Artemis.bm reported.
