Pillar Capital manages third party capital invested in the global property catastrophe risk market.
Pillar Capital was initially founded as Juniperus Capital Limited by the original management team in Bermuda in April 2008. The initiative was to seek opportunities in insurance related instruments.
In 2012, Aquiline Capital Partners (Aquiline), led by Jeff Greenberg, along with Marsh McLennan Companies (MMCo) and Transatlantic Holdings, Inc (Trans Re) made investments into the Manager and now provide strong institutional backing.
In connection with the investments by Aquiline and MMCo the Manager was rebranded as Pillar Capital Management Limited, representing the combination of strong institutional backing with solid foundation of the expanded Management Team, creating an independent asset manager.
Origin of the Pillar Name
The name Pillar represents the solid foundation created by bringing together three foundational elements of strength – exceptional institutional backing, an experienced & disciplined Management Team, and a differentiated strategy.
