Exclusive search for a dynamic M&A opportunity offering enterprise-level impact and senior executive exposure, including to industry icons (seriously!).

Open as a result of promotion, this opportunity is a key role within our client’s offshore Corporate Development team, which is responsible for evaluating M&A and reinsurance transactions, with an emphasis on developing unique reinsurance solutions for domestic and international markets.

You’ll have exposure to more than one deal at a time, with deals ranging from $1B to the largest deals in the market, $50-80B.  Each deal is unique - there is no cookie-cutter approach.

Because this team has had an increased focus on international transactions (non-U.S. acquisition and reinsurance deals) across various types of life and annuity business (primarily asset-intensive products), you'll have the chance to shine by working on the largest deals, as well as helping the Company break into new markets.

You’ll lead and support all phases of a transaction process, from initial target identification through bidding, contract negotiation, closing and post-close refresh, as well as perform diligence, underwriting, pricing evaluation, review of other analytical models, and the management of active and prospective M&A and reinsurance transactions.

A further differentiator is the strategic relationship between our client and a leading global private equity firm, one of the largest U.S. PE firms.

As a result of this team’s critical positioning and impact, everything you and the Corporate Development team do is presented to the CEO/CIO/Chairman/Co-Founder, President, and CFO of our client, along with several key partners including a Co-Founder at the global private equity firm, which means you have frequent and direct interaction with industry-defining individuals.

This opportunity comes with an ex-pat compensation package and is based in our client’s thriving Hamilton, Bermuda office, which has a robust operation of about 90 staff across Actuarial, Finance, Marketing, Legal, Information Technology, and Human Resources. 



The successful candidate for the Director, Corporate Development position will leverage strong quantitative skills, a solid understanding of international insurance liabilities and capital regimes, and, above all, the technical understanding of what makes insurance companies money.  The Director must be able to apply that knowledge in new scenarios, “taking theoretical understanding and technical capability to create practical solutions – frequently with limited information - and be able to communicate effectively about the work they’re doing.”

The successful candidate will bring the following knowledge and technical experience:

  • Ideal candidate will have significant experience with asset-intensive insurance pricing and/or accounting/financial reporting/capital modeling, with mastery of international Solvency frameworks (Solvency II, ICS, etc.) complimented by understanding of Stat and GAAP accounting
  • Advanced user of Microsoft Excel, with the ability to embed good organization and high levels of flexibility and auditability in large projects
  • Experience with actuarial systems, such as MG ALFA, Polysystems or GGY AXIS
  • Programming experience such as SAS, VBA, R, or Python
  • Preferred designations are FSA or FIA; in absence of an actuarial designation, strong consideration given to candidates who have a CFA, CPA or similar designation
  • Minimum 6+ years of experience in the life insurance or reinsurance industry or investment banking with significant experience in the financial services / insurance sector

The successful candidate for this position will have the following leadership skills and personal characteristics:

  • High degree of self-motivation and personal initiative
  • Hungry to learn, intellectually curious, passionate about delivering value - if someone is looking for more of a set, defined process, they’re not going to thrive in this role
  • Strong attention to detail and the ability to prioritize and manage several projects
  • Ability to view “big picture”, understand broad corporate impacts, and focus on company objectives
  • Ability to translate previous experience and knowledge into a broader application such as new markets
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Dedication to completing work thoroughly and on time, including under time pressures and outside normal working hours
  • Excellent analytical aptitude
  • Ability and desire for a demanding pace and, at times, long hours - successful candidate mindset is that the work is super exciting, super complex, and that’s the motivation - like reading a good book that you can’t put down
  • Ability to effectively present new ideas and influence key decision makers
  • Comfortable with ambiguity and an ability to not get flustered and stay even tempered - priorities and process can change quickly and nothing is set in stone
  • Affinity for teamwork and collaboration
  • Ability to work autonomously - autonomy is very big because the team has to rely on the individual creativity element because there are not enough resources or time to do much peer review
  • Reputation for honesty and integrity in all decisions and actions
