Brookfield’s Establishment of North End Re (Cayman) SPC

Appleby has advised Brookfield on the establishment of North End Re (Cayman) SPC.

Brookfield Asset Management Inc. launched a newly North End Re Ltd., a newly Cayman Islands reinsurer licensed by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority.

North End Re is an indirect subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management Reinsurance Partners Ltd. and has been assigned a Preliminary Credit Assessment by AM Best with a Financial Strength Assessment of A- pca (Excellent) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Assessment of “a-” pca.

North End Re, as a segregated portfolio company, could even be used to channel investor funds to the reinsurance business the vehicle writes, providing Brookfield with a ready made structure that can enable it to partner with investors and bring them into this side of its business as it grows.
