The firm said Hughes will be responsible for further developing and growing PartnerRe’s third-party capital initiatives and will be based in Bermuda.
He will report to PartnerRe’s president and CEO Jacques Bonneau, as a member of the company’s executive leadership team.

Bonneau said: “Growing our third-party capital platform is an important strategic initiative for our Company. We are committed to further developing our current platform to provide aligned insurance-linked investment solutions for institutional investor clients leveraging our deep underwriting and distribution capabilities.
“Growing this aligned capability will allow us to continue to develop and strengthen our relationships with our insurance clients and brokers.”
