GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, Jan. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greenlight Re Innovations (“GRI”), part of Greenlight Capital Re, Ltd. (NASDAQ: GLRE) (“Greenlight Re” or the “Company”), has received ‘in-principle’ approval from Lloyd’s to establish an insurtech-focused syndicate. Syndicate 3456, which will commence operations in the second quarter of 2022, will be established under the innovative “Syndicate-in-a-box” (SIAB) model. It will be managed by Asta, the leading third-party managing agent at Lloyd’s.

Greenlight Re Innovations has built a market-leading reputation in early stage insurtech and has made 20 investments to date. Syndicate 3456 will enable Greenlight Re to provide capacity to its growing portfolio of insurtechs.

The Company will appoint Andy Gladwin as active underwriter for Syndicate 3456. Andy, who has over 30 years of experience in the London market, joined Greenlight Re in November 2020 as Managing Director of Greenlight Re Marketing (UK) Limited. Andy said, “Greenlight Re has been a supporter of Lloyd’s for several years through the provision of Funds at Lloyd’s capacity. Syndicate 3456 will strengthen our Lloyd’s relationship and London market presence. We are delighted to work with Asta on this exciting initiative.”

Simon Burton, Chief Executive Officer at Greenlight Re, said, “GRI’s support of insurance innovators is a key element of Greenlight Re’s strategy. By combining Greenlight Re’s knowledge of and access to early stage insurtechs with Lloyd’s reputation, licensing, and rating, we aim to create a market-leading insurtech syndicate which can generate strong underwriting returns.”

Julian Tighe, Chief Executive Officer at Asta, added, “We are pleased to unveil our latest SIAB, which further reinforces our ability to provide a flexible and swift route to market for aspiring new entrants to Lloyd’s. GRI syndicate 3456 embodies innovation with its exclusive insurtech focus, and we are delighted to work with the Greenlight Re team. We look forward to seeing the positive impact its business may have in Lloyd’s.”
