(“AlphaCat”) manages strategic relationships that leverage the Validus Group’s underwriting and investment expertise and earns management, performance and underwriting fees. AlphaCat, formed in 2008, is a core element within the Vali- dus Group’s strategic initiative to expand into capital market activities by participating in the market for Insurance Linked Securities (“ILS”). ILS are financial instruments whose fundamental value is determined by insurance losses caused by natural catastrophes such as major earthquakes and hur- ricanes. As the returns on ILS are primarily driven by natural catastrophes, when carefully structured, they are generally uncorrelated with the overall financial markets, making ILS an attractive asset class for capital market investors. AlphaCat helps investors take advantage of this uncorrelated asset class through various funds and sidecars, currently ac- cessing the market via AlphaCat Reinsurance Ltd., a Bermuda provider of fully collateralized property catastrophe reinsurance and retrocession capacity and AlphaCat Master Fund, a Ber- muda investment fund investing in reinsurance related capital markets transactions. AlphaCat invests in private reinsurance transactions, as well as catastrophe bonds, a common type of ILS issued by insurance and reinsurance companies. AlphaCat leverages the Validus Group’s extensive business sourcing, underwriting, research and analytic capabilities to construct ILS portfolios subject to prudent risk constraints. AlphaCat is a Bermuda licensed insurance manager and is registered as an investment adviser with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under the U.S. Investment Ad- visers Act of 1940, as amended.

Amlin, headquartered in the UK, is a major London market participant with a presence at Lloyd’s of London and offices in key reinsurance hubs such as Bermuda, Zurich and Singapore. Leadenhall Capital Partners offers dedicated funds and managed accounts which give institutional investors access to both life and non-life insurance linked investments; through its non-life strategies Leadenhall offers its investors access to pure reinsurance risk through investments which have exposure to property losses from extreme natural catastrophes (major hurricanes and earthquakes) and other insurable risks (e.g. marine risk). Its life strategies provide investors with the opportunity to access returns from the life insurance linked asset class, which mostly focus on mortality and morbidity risks. Investors benefit from the attractive returns of the sector, whilst diversifying their risks from the traditional capital markets. Many instruments, such as cat bonds and private placements of collateralised reinsurance, are used to transfer insurance linked risk to the capital markets; Leadenhall uses all of them to ensure liquidity, profitability, diversification and growth. Leadenhall’s team has significant insurance capital markets experience gained at Swiss Re, Aon Benfield Securities & Guy Carpenter, with John Wells, the Chairman, and Luca Albertini, the CEO/CIO having a combined experience of over 55 years in the industry. as a “commodity pool operator” with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, a member of the National Futures Association and a signatory to the standards published by the Hedge Fund Standards Board.
