Further Infos

With this transaction Delvag reaches economic finality of a third-party reinsurance portfolio amounting to circa EUR 22million of reserves that has no active client relationships and that was underwritten from 1969 onwards. Further, this transaction also encompasses the mutual interest to undertake an Insurance Business Transfer of the portfolio to Accredited, subject to regulatory approvals.


BFRC's Role

Paul Corver, Group Head of M&A at R&Q explained: “We are delighted to have completed another Loss Portfolio Transfer with the mutual intention to follow on with a Reinsurance Business Transfer from Germany to Malta. We have assumed numerous portfolios of business from across Europe into our rated Maltese platform which provides complete finality to the cedant along with the accompanying cost and capital efficiencies. We are very pleased to have executed this transaction with Delvag. Once again it proves R&Q’s capabilities to utilize its international team to provide full finality legacy solutions across the US and Europe and here in particular in the DACH region.  We look forward to working closely with BFRC to conclude further legacy deals in the near future.”


Andreas Brügel, Director Reinsurance at Delvag explained: “After Delvag’s decision to cease writing third-party reinsurance business after 50 years this portfolio transfer was the logical consequence to free-up Solvency II capital. This fundamentally supports the reinsurance department’s new strategy to concentrate on providing services as a Group captive instead of primarily acting as a third-party business writer. The strategic alignment of Delvag’s Aviation and Marine department remains unaffected by this transaction”
