  • Nassau Financial Group Announces $100 Million Strategic Investment from Wilton Re and Stone Point Credit

    January 13, 2021 by Nassau Financial Group

    HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nassau Financial Group (“Nassau”) announced it has received an initial strategic investment of $100 million from Wilton Reassurance Company (“Wilton Re”) and Stone Point Credit (“Stone Point”). The strategic investment was made through the issuance of a new series of non-cumulative perpetual preferred equity and may be significantly increased as Nassau’s business grows.

    Nassau intends to use the new capital to execute on its organic growth plans across its insurance and asset management businesses as well as to support strategic acquisitions.

    Nassau was founded in 2015 with an initial capital commitment along with subsequent growth capital provided by Golden Gate Capital. Since that time, Nassau has grown and acquired a range of businesses across four segments of the insurance value chain: insurance, reinsurance, distribution and asset management.

    Over the last year, Nassau has:

    • Increased combined assets to $26.9 billion
    • Increased fixed annuity sales by 13% while the industry was down approximately 15%
    • Grown third-party AUM to approximately $4 billion and established a U.K.-based investment management business
    • Acquired Foresters Life Insurance and Annuity Company
    • Built additional direct-to-consumer and mobile applications for core annuity offerings
    • Maintained best-in-class service capability that consistently earns a 5-star Trustpilot rating, even with staff working remotely
    • Expanded the reach of Nassau Re/Imagine, an insurtech incubator that supports startup companies focused on the life insurance, annuity and reinsurance industries

    Following this strategic investment by Wilton Re and Stone Point, Golden Gate Capital remains a majority controlling shareholder.

    RBC Capital Markets served as financial advisor and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP served as legal advisor to Nassau. Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP served as legal advisor to Wilton Re and Stone Point.
