Earnings & Results Updates
Effective September 1, 2018, Greenlight Reinsurance, Ltd. and Greenlight Reinsurance Ireland, DAC (collectively, the “Companies”) became limited partners in Solasglas Investments, LP (“Solasglas”) (see Notes 1 and 2). DME Advisors acts as investment advisor to Solasglas.
Our investment returns (net of fees and expenses) for the funds invested in Solasglas and managed by DME Advisors are provided below* (see Note 2). DME Advisors reported an investment gain for the month of July 2020 of 1.3%, which represents an estimated investment gain (net of fees and expenses) to the Companies of $5,900,000.
*Investment returns are calculated monthly and compounded to calculate the year to date and annual returns. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Note 1: The Companies are required to fund accounts that provide collateral to support trust accounts and letters of credit for their underwriting operations. These funds are typically invested in cash, cash equivalents and fixed income securities and are held outside of Solasglas.
Note 2: In accordance with the Solasglas limited partnership agreement, DME Advisors constructs an investment portfolio as agreed with the Companies (the “Investment Portfolio”). In determining the size of the Investment Portfolio, the Companies exclude an amount approximately equal to the Companies’ net loss reserves. Additionally, as previously disclosed on May 31, 2019, the Companies have de-risked the Investment Portfolio and expect a majority of the Investment Portfolio will consist of cash and short-term U.S. treasuries and will have a portfolio composition that is not substantially similar to other funds managed by DME Advisors or its affiliates. The monthly investment return is calculated by dividing the investment income/loss (net of fees and expenses) by the Investment Portfolio.
