Hamilton Insurance Group has appointed Brenton Slade as senior vice president of Hamilton Capital Partners, a new business unit that will develop Hamilton’s capital management capabilities.

Slade will join Hamilton on June 19, 2018 and will be reporting to group chief financial officer Jonathan Reiss.

“In today’s evolving market, meeting the needs of our clients presents a host of opportunities for real innovation as far as fully integrated customised solutions are concerned,” said Hamilton chief executive officer Pina Albo. “Managing capital for third parties is one of these opportunities, and Brent has been at the centre of this burgeoning sector of our industry for almost 15 years. We know his impressive track record will stand us in good stead as we develop Hamilton Capital Partners.”

Slade was formerly at The Horseshoe Group where he was chief operating officer. At Horseshoe, he was responsible for leading the global business operations of the group and focused on brand strength, day-to-day operations, business development, and client service delivery.

Between 2005 and 2013, he was a member of the executive committee and chief marketing and capital markets officer for Flagstone Reinsurance. There he was responsible for capital market initiatives including capital structure transactions, and ILS, cat bond, and sidecar businesses, as well as investor relations and firm-wide marketing.
