We have a new Artemis Live video interview for you today in which we discuss the concept of Collateralised Facultative Reinsurance (CFR) and the investment opportunity that presents with James Poole, Co-founder of AGILE Risk Partners.
AGILE Risk Partners was launched as a pure risk advisory, with a focus on challenging risks and facultative exposures, as well as on bringing alternative forms of reinsurance capital to ceding companies to help them lower their cost-of-risk, while delivering returns to investors that are attracted to this kind of opportunity.
All of our Artemis Live video interviews can be accessed directly from our YouTube Channel and we will have more interesting discussions with leaders of the ILS and reinsurance industry to come.
James and his business partners launched AGILE as a pure risk advisory, bringing broking expertise, and an understanding of insurer and reinsurer capital pressures together with technology to try and deliver a lower cost-of-risk for their clients.
Recently, AGILE has secured risk capital from hedge fund investors amounting to $250 million and is now looking to secure opportunities to deploy that capital on a collateralised basis into what they are terming “special reinsurance situations.”
With a maximum of $30m deployable into any single opportunity, the AGILE team hopes to build a diversified portfolio of really interesting risk opportunities for its investors, while helping cedents to reduce their cost-of-risk.
James explained AGILE’s thinking around the concept of Collateralised Facultative Reinsurance (CFR) and why he thinks that’s the next big thing and a relatively untapped opportunity for insurance-linked investors.
