Horseshoe said the hires are part of its efforts to further strengthen its global offerings to the reinsurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS) space, with both of the hires based out of the firm’s Bermuda office and set to take on important roles in the global business.
Andre Perez, CEO of Horseshoe, commented on the hires, “We are extremely excited to have Anna and Mark join our team. Their extensive expertise and broad industry knowledge will enhance our level of client service and help further develop our many global capabilities.”
