July 24, 2020
Jonathan Reiss is joining captive management and consulting firm Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS) as managing director and as a member of the board.
Mr. Reiss, who is currently president of strategic partnerships at Hamilton Insurance Group, Ltd., in Bermuda, is expected to join SRS during this year's fourth quarter. He will assume responsibility for several of the company's expansion initiatives, primarily focused in the commercial insurance and reinsurance sector.
Mr. Reiss has more than 27 years of insurance industry experience and is one of the founders of Hamilton, having previously served as its group chief financial officer. He currently oversees a variety of Hamilton's strategic initiatives, including Hamilton ILS, Hamilton's syndicate management business at Lloyd's, and certain InsurTech joint venture interests.
"I am excited to have someone of Jonathan's caliber and experience join the firm," Brady Young, president and CEO of SRS, said in a statement. "We have enjoyed consistently strong growth in our core captive management and consulting business including expansion of those businesses geographically. We also believe there are opportunities to provide more services to commercial insurers and reinsurers as well as developing new products, services, and risk capital to support our existing captive client base.
"Jonathan will play a lead role in helping us evaluate these opportunities and, where appropriate, to implement solutions," Mr. Young said.
"I am thrilled to be joining the terrific team at SRS and in a role that builds on my prior experiences," Mr. Reiss said in the statement. "SRS is a leader in the captive management industry, and as the largest independent manager, is the best alternative to the broker owned managers.
"Because of its impressive client base and broad insurance manager and risk management capabilities, SRS is uniquely well positioned to expand into complementary areas of the broader insurance industry," Mr. Reiss said.
Mr. Reiss will be based in Bermuda but will be engaged in firm activities worldwide.
