Specialty re/insurer SiriusPoint has made an undisclosed investment in managing general agent (MGA) platform Samos Insurance.

Samos is engaged in offering risk management and Accident Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance solutions. 

The MGA was established as the ‘first on-demand’ AD&D insurance for elective surgeries in the US and Canada to provide cover in case of accidental death during surgery.

Samos’ offering covers planned surgeries such as heart surgery, caesarean sections, joint replacement, and cancer diagnostic procedure. 

SiriusPoint US head of accident & health Tom Leonardo said: “The company offers a tech-based insurance and risk management product that deals with a real problem faced by many people going into hospital.”

The policies cover the insured from admission to discharge and will be offered via urgent care and hospitals for the accident-based offerings.
