Marsh launches Edgware Re

Marsh announced the creation of Edgware Re, a group captive insurance company for organizations seeking more control and stability in their cyber insurance programs.

Based in Bermuda, Edgware Re is a cyber-only group captive that will only transact business with its participating members. Participating members can purchase up to $10 million in insurance or reinsurance from Edgware Re based on their needs. Limits are expected to grow as participation increases. Marsh will provide captive management, incident response, vendor engagement, and claims advocacy support to Edgware Re.

Additionally, participant members will be eligible for dividends in the event of requisite profitability.

“As the scale, frequency, and economic impact of cyber events continue to grow, organizations must regularly reconsider and optimize their cyber risk strategies. Edgware Re is a great example of Marsh working with its clients to use their own capacity to create a sustainable insurance program that better meets their needs in today’s market.” – Tom Reagan, Global Cyber Practice Leader, Marsh Specialty.

“The captive insurance market is a proven risk financing alternative for organizations that want to take greater control of their risk and gain increased financial flexibility and protection. Edgware Re offers its participants the potential for more stable pricing and control, access to shared best practices, and potential profit sharing; and is the latest Marsh captive innovation following the recent launch of ReadyCell.” – Ellen Charnley, President of Marsh Captive Solutions.
