  • "Capsicum Re have been true business partners. They helped us formulate our initial business plan, coordinated our approach to the market and helped us to establish our platform. Reinsurance structuring and placement were subsequently carried out with professionalism and diligence but it was the creativity and willingness to invest time in our creation that was so crucial. For us the difference is Capsicum put our interests first…it’s client first – market second. They make a difference."
