Third Point Re strengthens its specialty treaty offering

Third Point Reinsurance has appointed David Sinclair as senior vice president of marketing and investments.

He will take up his position in London on September 2 and reports to marketing director Clare Himmer.

Sinclair has over 25 years’ insurance experience, having spent the majority of his career at Transatlantic Re, most recently as head of capital solutions. In that role he was responsible for marketing and sourcing underwriting opportunities to provide capital for reinsurance capacity.

He has experience of capital provision at Lloyd’s, non-traditional structures and specialty lines including mortgage, credit, surety, political violence, political risks and legal expenses.

The appointment is part of Third Point Re’s strategy to build out its presence in specialty reinsurance, following the appointment of Tracey Gibbons to lead the specialty reinsurance underwriting team in April. Sinclair will work with Himmer and the Bermuda specialty treaty team, as well as with David Govrin, president of Third Point Re USA, to explore investment opportunities.

Dan Malloy, CEO of Third Point Re, said: “This year we have focused on building out our presence in the specialty treaty space, making a number of excellent hires and David’s appointment continues this progress. We have had the pleasure of co-participating with David on a number of placements so know first-hand of his excellent reputation and strong track record in the market.”
