PRESS RELEASE: OneAdvent supports launch of new Altamont-backed market entrant, Augment Risk

OneAdvent, the specialist MGA and broker services platform, has been selected by reinsurance broker, Augment Risk, as a partner in the launch of its UK and European offering.

Officially introduced to the market in July, Augment Risk will have access to over $100m of capital from US-based PE firm, Altamont Capital Partners. Augment’s presence in the US, UK, Bermuda, EU and the Cayman Islands will facilitate their global offering to clients.  OneAdvent’s deep understanding of the MGA ecosystem, and the complex (re)insurance structures behind them, make them the ideal partner for the business.

Joe Zuk, Operating Partner at Altamont, commented;

OneAdvent has the necessary expertise and a deep understanding of the increasingly complex post-Brexit regulatory environment and they will play a vital role in reducing our execution risk and enabling our speed-to-market”.

OneAdvent will provide Augment with a suite of support services including regulatory, compliance and business expertise to help the broker establish a firm presence in the UK and Europe.

Richard Palmer, Head of Risk & Compliance at OneAdvent, said;

Augment are bringing together a highly experienced and talented team and we are committed to helping them put the necessary structures in place to service their clients globally.”

The new reinsurance broker has in-depth expertise in the intricacies of capital modelling and supports P&C clients with the designing and placement of protections including prospective reinsurance and retrospective capital and legacy structures.

Tim Quayle, Managing Director at OneAdvent added:

“We understand what ambitious businesses like Augment need to succeed and as our respective businesses grow, we look forward to exploring new opportunities together”.
