Triton Re brings Japanese capital to the convergence markets


A recently formed Bermuda special purpose insurer is bringing capital from one of the largest Japanese family office investors to Bermuda and plans to deploy some of it into the reinsurance convergence markets in catastrophe bonds, industry loss warranties and sidecars. Triton Re launched in December with $30m of capital according to the Royal Gazette.

The reinsurer is being headed up by Hiroki Enokitohge, a former employee of the Mitsubishi group and also an independent investor, who is CEO of the newly formed Bermuda startup reinsurer. Triton Re has a multi pronged remit to write property and casualty risks and also invest in catastrophe bonds, ILW’s and sidecars. The Horsehoe Group are managing the SPI.

It’s interesting to see more capital from Asia being actively targeted at the insurance-linked securities and convergence markets as we hear that there are many investors in the region who would like to access the asset classes but who can find it difficult. We expect to see more focus on Asia from ILS investment managers in their hunt for capital as we move through 2012.
