BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Convex Group raises additional $500M


Convex Group Ltd., a London and Bermuda-based specialty insurer and reinsurer formed by former Lloyd’s of London underwriter Stephen Catlin and Paul Brand, has raised an additional $500 million in capital from an investment firm.

Convex said in a statement Thursday with Sixth Street Partners LLC that it has secured $500 million in committed preferred capital from affiliates of the San Francisco-based firm.

Convex chairman and CEO Mr. Catlin said in a statement the additional capital “provides us with greater flexibility as we continue our recent momentum in growing our business.”

Convex was founded in 2019 with $1.7 billion of initial committed capital to underwrite insurance and reinsurance for complex specialty risks. Its initial capital was raised from the Convex management team, from Onex V, Toronto-based Onex Corp.’s large-cap private equity fund, and a consortium of co-investors.

In November, it announced it had secured commitments for an additional $1 billion of equity capital, and that the additional capital was raised from the same investor group as well as additional new Onex co-investors.

Convex is among the reinsurers backing Lloyd’s of London and technology company Parsyl Inc., which launched a global health risk facility in December to cover the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, after securing a $26.7 million loan from the U.S. International Development Finance Corp.
