Led by Eric Gutierrez, Horizon will focus purely on property reinsurance treaty at launch, the company will offer extensive capacity across property catastrophe XL, property catastrophe aggregate XL and property per risk XL.

Horizon will also explore targeted opportunities in the retrocession market. The portfolio will expand to include other lines of property reinsurance and casualty treaty business in 2019.

Launching from the financially robust platform Volante provides enables Horizon to offer diversification broader than a single carrier, helping ensure greater relevance to brokers and clients, and where appropriate secure its position as a preferred partner.

Horizon further capitalises on the extensive group infrastructure, which ensures full administrative and underwriting compliance support from the outset, and extends the client capabilities of the company from the initial transaction through to post-bind client service including claims handling and resolution.
