William Spiegel, Executive Group Chairman of Randall & & Quilter( R&Q) Investment Holdings, stated today that insurance-linked securities (ILS) markets are a target for the companies growing program management business.R&& Q typically works alongside managing basic agents (MGAs) and reinsurance suppliers to them, assisting them deploy program focused capacity using its certified Accredited and other brand insurance platforms in the United States, Bermuda and Europe.
Those reinsurance suppliers could be insurance-linked securities (ILS) fund supervisors in some cases, which is an area that R&Q is targeting more growth for the program management and fronting side of its organization model.
This morning, R&Q announced that its program management organization grew its gross premiums written by 91% in the first 9 months of 2021, writing $714 million this year, compared to $395 million by the end of Q3 2020.

Executive Chairman Spiegel stated, “We are delighted to report another strong quarter of development in our Program Management organization.”
Sitting between threat capital and main sources of danger has a substantial value proposal when the capital originates from sources that dont have the platforms, access, or scale to compose business themselves.
For ILS markets, working with a program providers can not simply smooth access to threats from more towards the start of the market chain, it can also open up opportunities that they might just have actually seen as soon as a risk cascaded through the marketplace to the reinsurance or retrocession end.
Its not a surprise Spiegel want to target this sector, as theres a clear opportunity to help ILS fund supervisors in accessing selected portfolios of threat in a more efficient manner, fronting that threat and wrapping it into a portfolio reinsurance deal that a fund can quicker assume.
Spiegel commented, “Our pipeline of chances stays robust, and we stay concentrated on establishing tactical partnerships with leading MGAs, highly-rated reinsurers and the ILS markets in both Europe and the US.”
Particular opportunities might open up for R&Q around Florida, provided it has a licensed provider domiciled there, with the upcoming depopulation of Citizens one chance that may appeal to some ILS funds, but for which they d require a fronting and program management partner.
There are lots of other chances in the market to take ILS market capacity to programs of insurance company, if that sort of risk interest an ILS fund supervisor.
R&Q is also tapping third-party capital sources on the legacy side of its company too, having raised its first sidecar this year.
