Cyber insurance provider Coalition has formed a new independent Bermuda-based Class 3B reinsurance firm, called Ferian Re.

Ferian Re has been formed to provide capacity across Coalition’s cyber programmes.

The new entity will secure $300m from a consortium of investors led by BDT Capital Partners, an affiliate of BDT & Company.

Minority investors such as the Pritzker Organization and other global investors will also be investing in the reinsurer.

Ferian Re will be participating in Coalition’s cyber insurance programmes alongside insurers and reinsurers, such as Allianz Group, Arch Insurance North America, and Swiss Re Corporate Solutions.

Coalition founder and CEO Joshua Motta said: “The rapid growth of the cyber insurance industry has outpaced the supply of reinsurance capital. We are excited for Ferian Re to bring alternative capital to the market and introduce a reinsurer with deep expertise in cyber.
