Cyrus Re sidecar details

The $525m fully-collateralized reinsurance sidecar vehicle, Cyrus Re, was established by XL in late 2005 in order to assume a portion of the property catastrophe risks taken on by XL through its business in Bermuda, Dublin, continental Europe and Toronto.

The special-purpose quota share counter-party, Cyrus Re, acts as a reinsurer of XL property catastrophe and retrocessional business and was issued with a duration of two underwriting years, although with mutual consent this could be extended.

A year after its launch, in December 2006, the fully-collateralized reinsurance sidecar had a capital base of $635m, following additional contributions.
