In a statement, Jacques Q. Bonneau, Chairman of ACE Tempest Re Group, said that “Similar to our first Altair Re vehicle, Altair Re II gives us additional quota share capacity to meet the diversified property catastrophe needs of our insurance and reinsurance company clients”

Altair Re II, like the first Altair vehicle, gives ACE additional quota-share capacity to meet the diversified property-catastrophe needs of insurance and reinsurance company clients.
