The Canada Pension Plan Funding Board stated it could purchase Ascot, American Worldwide Group’s Lloyd’s of London platform, in a deal valued at about $1.1-billion (U.S.), because it pushes to broaden its world presence.
The deal, which incorporates the acquisition of Ascot Underwriting Ltd and Ascot Company Title Ltd, will present “sturdy money yield and a pretty scalable funding for the fund,” CPPIB mentioned on Friday.
The $1.1-billion contains CPPIB’s recapitalization of Ascot Syndicate 1414’s capital necessities, AIG stated.
Every member on the Lloyd’s of London insurance coverage platform is required to supply capital as safety to help its complete Lloyd’s underwriting enterprise.
Ascot will proceed to function as a standalone, impartial enterprise ruled by its personal board of administrators and can retain its total senior administration group, led by Andrew Brooks.
