“Historic low interest rates, combined with new regulations, including Solvency II, and an uncertain insurance rate environment are creating market pressures and new opportunities that we are well-prepared to leverage,” said Glenn Weber, CEO of Southport Re.
Southport Lane has been active in acquisitions throughout the year including the purchase of Dallas National Insurance Company and the acquisition of Redwood Reinsurance SPC, Ltd. The firm is looking to build on the success of those initiatives.
“As we are still in the early stages of expanding our reinsurance platform, it is critical that we interact with current and future counterparties,” said Alexander Burns, Chief Strategist of Southport Lane, the private equity parent of Southport Re. “Monte Carlo and Rendez-vous provide the ideal venue for building and strengthening these relationships.”
