Leadenhall Capital Partners LLP, the London headquartered specialist insurance linked securities (ILS) and reinsurance related investments manager, has announced the promotion of long-term employee and partner Lorenzo Volpi to the position of Deputy CEO.
Lorenzo Volpi was already a Managing Partner and led all business development and investor relations activities at Leadenhall Capital Partners.
He has played a critical role in the development of the ILS fund manager over more than a decade, helping it build out its ILS assets under management across life and P&C risks to more than $6.2 billion.
Volpi joined Leadenhall Capital Partners in 2010 from insurance and reinsurance broker Aon and has been a core member of the senior team and particularly influential in developing relations with large institutional investors.
As Deputy CEO of Leadenhall, Volpi will continue in his responsibilities as Head of Business Development and will also be participating in some of Leadenhall’s governance bodies, such as the Management Board and Valuation and Reserving Committee.
The company explained that the promotion of Volpi “does not signal any intention of Leadenhall’s current CEO (Luca Albertini) to step down,” explaining that it “provides clarity” on the ILS fund manager’s succession plans for the future.
