Greenlight Re to establish an insurtech-focused syndicate

Greenlight Re Innovations, part of Greenlight Re , has received approval from Lloyd’s to establish an insurtech-focused syndicate.

Syndicate 3456, which will begin operating in the second quarter of 2022, will be established under the “Syndicate-in-a-box” (SIAB) model. It will be managed by Asta, a third-party managing agent at Lloyd’s and 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.

“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.” – Simon Burton, Chief Executive Officer at Greenlight Re.

“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.” – Julian Tighe, Chief Executive Officer at Asta.
