Peak Re, Fosun and NAGICO to support the restoration in the Caribbean

At this time of unprecedented devastation across a wide swath of the Caribbean, and with another powerful storm looking as though it might reprise the damage and disruption of Hurricane Irma, our thoughts and prayers are with the people affected in this terrible event, and those who are safe elsewhere worrying about their loved ones in the islands.

As a major shareholder of Nagico, our particular thoughts lie with our colleagues, their clients and the brokers and agents who support those communities shattered by Hurricane Irma. We are committed to working with partners, both within our insurance community and without, to help rebuild lives and communities as soon as possible.

To that end, we are able to announce that we have support from our major shareholder Fosun International, who will work together with Peak Re and Nagico to help get people, families and communities back on their feet. Commenting on this Chairman of Fosun, Mr Guo Guangchang said, “We are saddened by the destruction that Hurricane Irma has wrought on the Caribbean Island. We want to assure the communities of the island of our commitment and support from Fosun Group and Fosun Foundation”.

Franz-Josef Hahn, CEO of Peak Reinsurance Company Limited in Hong Kong said “In the coming days, and as communication links with those in the St Maarten and other islands is re-established, we will work to formulate plans in conjunction with interested parties, to begin the process of rebuilding. We are committed to playing our part in the community of the St Maarten and the wider Caribbean, and in supporting its recovery and long term growth.
