Winter storm Uri drove performance fee decline for RenRe ILS vehicles

The decrease in performance fees experienced by RenaissanceRes third-party reinsurance capital and insurance-linked securities (ILS) cars in the first-quarter of 2021 was driven by the impacts of winter storm Uri, CFO Bob Qutub said yesterday.As we described the other day, RenaissanceRe (RenRe) reported that its managed insurance-linked securities (ILS) funds drove unfavorable performance associated cost income in Q1 2021, which we assumed was from disaster losses suffered.
Speaking throughout RenRes earnings call the other day, CFO Qutub revealed that a $23 million decrease in performance costs was because of winter storm Uri and the related Texas freeze.
” This decrease was driven by a $23 million reduction in efficiency fees, primarily in DaVinci and Upsilon related to Uri,” Qutub described.
DaVinci Re is RenRes third-party capitalised and market facing reinsurance business and Upsilon RFO Re Ltd. is RenaissanceRes collateralised reinsurance and retrocession focused ILS fund structure.
Qutub likewise explained that DaVinci and RenRes Medici fund, which is mainly disaster bond focused, likewise suffered reported losses during the duration, which contributed together with the Upsilon effects to net noncontrolling interest attributable to these lorries reaching $47 million for Q1.
With Medici, this will likely have actually been down to the mark-to-market losses on catastrophe bonds exposed to winter storm Uri.
Qutub even more described, “As a pointer, when a considerable event happens in the quarter, we normally relax formerly scheduled profit commissions. This can lead to unfavorable efficiency charges like you see this quarter.”
Vermeer Ltd., RenRes joint-venture reinsurance company launched with the investment banking of significant ILS player PGGM, fared much better though, reporting earnings for the quarter.
Vermeer has a more top-layer design method, purchasing collateralized reinsurance at greater attachments, so appears to have actually prevented as much impact from winter season storm Uri.
Its natural that RenRes third-party reinsurance capital lorries and ILS structures would feel the effects of a large market event like Uri.
