Horseshoe Group (“Horseshoe”) today announced that Jean-Bernard Crozet will be joining the firm as Senior Vice President – Advisory Services and Head of London Office, where he will lead Horseshoe’s worldwide advisory services, including working with Horseshoe’s fund services group on valuation and transparency reporting.
Jean-Bernard (“JB”) was most recently London Head of Underwriting Modelling at MS Amlin where he established and led a world-class analytics function including pricing, catastrophe modelling and exposure management across the MS Amlin group. A seasoned reinsurance executive with more than two decades of experience, Mr. Crozet was previously Associate Director in the Actuarial Practice of PwC London office, where he founded PwC’s catastrophe risk, ILS and transfer pricing offerings and helped to lead and deliver a range of products for the London, Bermuda and European markets.
“JB’s experience in building strong actuarial and underwriting practices at several well-respected institutions, along with his client relationships around the world, will help further deepen Horseshoe’s talent pool” said Andre Perez, CEO of Horseshoe. “His leadership and expertise, especially in the property catastrophe space is an excellent fit with our specialty in the ILS space, and I’m delighted that he is joining the Horseshoe Group. This is the third time JB and I will be working together, I have tremendous respect for his capabilities and expertise and I look forward to working with him again!”
Mr. Crozet will take over actuarial and insurance advisory duties from Kathy Garrigan, who has relocated from Bermuda to the USA and will remain working for Horseshoe until mid- September.“Kathy has laid down good foundations for valuation and reporting standards for the ILS funds we administer,” continued Mr. Perez. “We look forward to having JB build on that foundation.”.Mr. Crozet began his career in 1994 at PSA Finance in London. He progressed to AGF Insurance in 1996 and to CNA Re in 1998. In 1999, Mr. Crozet joined Overseas Partners Re in Bermuda as Pricing Manager and was subsequently promoted to Vice President, Actuarial and then to Vice President, Underwriting in 2001. He then joined Alea Bermuda as VP and Underwriter.
“I could not be more thrilled to join Horseshoe at this exciting time in the Group’s growth trajectory,” said Mr. Crozet. “Horseshoe is uniquely positioned to provide independent ILS related advice & services to leading ILS Funds as well as insurance and reinsurance companies, and I look forward to helping expand our overall presence in Europe.”
Mr. Crozet received his degree in Applied Mathematics and Social Sciences at the University of Lyon, France in 1991 and obtained the French Actuarial Qualification (ISFA) in 1994. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries and a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society. Mr. Crozet is also a Chartered Financial Analyst,accredited through the CFA institute.
“Adding a person of JB’s caliber and experience as the Head of our London office will undoubtedly strengthen our ILS presence in London where Mike Baker has recently transferred from our Gibraltar office and one other senior staff transfer will take place shortly,” said Mr. Perez. “Having a talented three-person team in London, and the support of Horseshoe’s global team, will allow us to be closer and more responsive to our London and European clients”
