Risk advisory firm Insurance Partners Europe (IPE) has recruited insurance-linked securities (ILS) specialist Pierre Mouilhade in an effort to expand its services for the alternative capital sector.
Mouilhade, who is a former ILS portfolio manager at SCOR Investment Partners, will help IPE to assist investors in accessing returns from the reinsurance market through ILS allocations.
Currently, IPE is focused on traditional insurance and reinsurance consulting and brokerage, with clients benefitting from portfolio construction and management services, as well as modelling and risk analysis.
However, the company sees further opportunities to provide services to ILS investors and investment managers who require assistance on portfolio management, catastrophe modelling and reinsurance underwriting.
IPE was founded in 2019 by another former SCOR executive, Pierre-Antoine Mazoyer, who worked at the reinsurance firm as a senior treaty underwriter.
Speaking to our ILS-focus sister publication, Artemis, Mazoyer commented: “I am delighted the company keeps gathering such talents as Pierre to sustain our ambitions. He will bring tech development as well as ILS opportunities given its outstanding track record in its previous funds.”
Mouilhade added: “Pierre-Antoine successfully launched IPE with strong partnerships between insurers and reinsurers. The expanding to ILS advisory is in the continuity of our expertise with proven track record.”
“The ultimate aim is to operate a convergence in our operations and to give access to direct insurance programs to third party capital.”
