McGill and Partners announced that they will be opening an office in the island, saying that “Bermuda is a world-class [re]insurance marketplace for both financial and human capital, and a natural location for McGill and Partners.”

A spokesperson said, “McGill and Partners, the boutique specialist [re]insurance broker, is set for further expansion following regulatory approval for its Bermuda operation. The office will officially open later this month.

“The Bermuda office will complement McGill and Partners’ other international operations as it continues with the rapid build out of its global specialty business. Kate Vacher has taken on the role of CEO for the McGill and Partners Bermuda entity.


“Kate began her career in London, as an underwriter at Lloyd’s, before joining Aspen Insurance as one of the original team. Since then, Kate has held a number of senior roles including Group Director of Underwriting with responsibilities for planning, reinsurance purchasing and capital optimization across all lines [Property, Casualty, Specialty Insurance and Reinsurance]. She was also Active Underwriter of the Aspen Syndicate for six years before moving to Bermuda as CEO of the Aspen Bermuda platform.

“Kate will report into Angus Milgate, Head of International Treaty Reinsurance at McGill and Partners. Kate is a further addition to the Treaty Reinsurance team which has grown substantially in the last year.

“Since its inception in May 2019, McGill and Partners has undergone significant growth and now has a presence in London, New York, Miami and Dublin, in addition to the new Bermuda hub. Headcount has also grown substantially, and now surpasses 360 colleagues hired.”

Angus Milgate, Head of Treaty Reinsurance at McGill and Partners comments: “For decades, the [re]insurance market in Bermuda has consistently innovated to maintain its position as a major global [re]insurance centre. We expect this momentum to continue as Bermuda is a world-class [re]insurance marketplace for both financial and human capital, and a natural location for McGill and Partners.

“Kate brings an incredible breadth and depth of experience, together with extensive industry contacts and we are delighted to have her on-board for this exciting milestone in the McGill and Partners adventure.”
