Elliott to Acquire a Controlling Interest in Aeolus
Aeolus Capital Management Ltd. (“Aeolus” or “ACM”) today announced that it has reached an agreement in principle pursuant to which Elliott Management Corporation (“Elliott”), through an affiliate, will acquire a controlling interest in ACM and its affiliated entities. The transaction is subject to the completion of definitive documentation and regulatory approval and is expected to be completed before year end.
The selling shareholders -- Peter Appel, founder of ACM, and Allied World Assurance Company (“Allied World”) -- will each retain significant minority ownership positions, with Mr. Appel continuing to serve ACM as its Non-Executive Chairman and Allied World continuing as a substantial capital provider to the investment funds managed by ACM. The ACM management team, led by Andrew Bernstein, Chris Grasso, Trevor Jones and Frank Fischer, will continue in their current roles and will retain their entire equity ownership interest in the business following closing of the transaction.
Mr. Appel, commenting on the transaction, said: “This transaction has been months in the making, and we have worked carefully to ensure that this new partnership will serve the best interests of our investors. Elliott is one of the world’s most highly respected hedge funds, having compiled an extraordinary record of outstanding and consistent performance over nearly forty years. More importantly for us, though, Elliott shares our analytical and disciplined approach to generating exceptional risk-adjusted returns for our investors, and will provide us with access to additional resources, insights and relationships to help us broaden our product offerings and further establish Aeolus as an enduring and growing franchise.”
Mark Cicirelli, a Portfolio Manager at Elliott, commented: “Elliott is pleased to become a full partner in the ownership and stewardship of ACM. We have been investing in Aeolus since 2012 and are also very familiar with the company as a core reinsurance provider to Asta’s Syndicate 4242 at Lloyd’s in which we are invested. Over the years we have developed a strong relationship with the Aeolus management team and have long recognized their ingenuity and skill in managing capital on behalf of their investors and structuring reinsurance and retro protection for their cedants. We believe Aeolus is the pre-eminent asset manager in the industry and we look forward to working closely with our new partners.”
Aeolus Capital Management Ltd. manages capital on behalf of investors seeking the superior risk adjusted returns and diversification benefits available from investing in the property catastrophe reinsurance and retrocession market.
