Compre, the Bermuda headquartered international legacy group, has received regulatory approval to acquire the French medical malpractice (MedMal) portfolio from a European based insurer for an undisclosed sum.

The deal, structured as a loss portfolio transfer to be followed by a legal transfer, was brokered by Guy Carpenter. The portfolio contains legacy, live and prospective risks through 2023.

Simon Hawkins, chief executive officer Europe at Compre, said: “We worked closely with the insurer to ensure the structure optimises capital release and provides operational finality. This transaction further demonstrates our client-focused approach, which ensured our client’s objectives were realised, and our commitment to building a centre of excellence for MedMal in Europe.”

It has experience of acquiring most classes of direct and reinsurance business, including general liability, marine and motor liability, and US APH.
