Vanbridge’s primary focus is to bring solutions to clients, particularly alternative asset managers, insurers and reinsurers. We are an insurance intermediary, capital advisory and insurance and reinsurance management firm that provides products and services at the intersection of the insurance/reinsurance, private equity and hedge fund industries. Since our inception, we have been providing advice and solutions that allow Alternative Asset Management firms to utilize insurance techniques to support their investing strategies as well as reducing costs for their holdings resulting in EBITDA enhancement.
We hold a distinctive position in the market by virtue of our unique interdisciplinary management team of industry experts and our broad network of contacts. The combination of these resources, along with those of our investors and other strategic capital partners, gives us the capacity to source opportunities, provide due diligence, advise, acquire and operate insurance related assets.
Our Intermediary Services group assists private equity firms, hedge funds and other asset managers in managing risk through specialty insurance programs and risk aggregation, accessing traditional and alternative sources of capacity. Our products include: property & casualty; reps & warranty, tax indemnity and other transactional risk products; employee benefits, executive benefits and customized life insurance products.
Vanbridge’s Capital Advisory group develops, structures, and implements a wide range of products and solutions for corporations, insurers and reinsurers, MGAs and alternative asset managers. With legal, capital markets and brokerage experience, Vanbridge’s team of seasoned professionals provide advice, access to capital and capacity.
On April 1, 2015, Vanbridge completed the acquisitions of Alan Gray, Inc., a highly respected international audit, actuarial, underwriting, reinsurance and risk management firm and Universal Insurance Services, considered one of the most innovative life insurance and financial advisory distribution firms in the country.
As a result of this remarkable combination, we have effectively brought all of the services related to insurance, reinsurance and capital markets into a single organization that is focused on providing high-end, bespoke solutions and tailored portfolio aggregation programs. No one insurance broker or investment bank currently offers this total integrated approach as a combined business enterprise—until now.
Vanbridge: no silos, just solutions.
