Fidelis raises capital as Travelers makes strategic minority investment

Bermuda-based insurance and reinsurance holding company, Fidelis Insurance Holdings Limited, has announced that The Travelers Companies, Inc. has made a strategic minority investment in Fidelis.

Terms of the transaction, which sees Fidelis raise additional capital with a strategic investor, were not disclosed.

Fidelis operates a Three Pillar strategy across bespoke, reinsurance and specialty, as well as its fee income business supporting the aforementioned pillars, Socium.

Fidelis states that its Three Pillar approach provides it with more diversified income streams, which in turn allow it to target the most profitable opportunities across the market cycle.

Hinal Patel, Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Fidelis, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Travelers to our shareholder panel. Travelers and Fidelis are leaders in their fields, with proven track records in our respective markets. We believe that there will be opportunities to learn from each other and work together.”
