Puma Capital sidecar details

Puma Capital was launched in 2007 with a capital base of $182.5m, designed with a three-year duration. Issued by Bermudian reinsurer Bridge Re, which is wholly owned by investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort, the reinsurance sidecar vehicle subsequently closed a year later, in April 2008, owing to weaker market conditions.

The vehicle was launched to enable Bridge Re to write fully-collateralized worldwide property catastrophe retrocession cover, and was brokered by London market broker, Alwen Hough Johnson Ltd (AHJ)
