Hamilton, Bermuda–: 12 March 2019 – In a filing with the Bermuda Stock Exchange CATCo Reinsurance Opportunities Fund Ltd. (the "Company”; Ticker: CAT.BH), announced the partial waiver of management fee in respect of side pocket investments. The full filing stated:

 

The Board of the Company is pleased to announce its decision to consent to a waiver of 33.3334% (one-third) of the management fee it indirectly pays to Markel CATCo Investment Management Ltd. ("MCIM") in respect of side pocket investments.  The reduction resulting from the waiver will have effect from 1 January 2019 until 31 December 2019, but is subject to extension by MCIM and the Markel CATCo Diversified Fund (“Master Fund”).

 

The management fee is payable to MCIM, in its capacity as investment manager of the Master Fund, through which the Company holds its investments.  The Company is exposed to side pocket investments by way of its holding of certain classes of share in the Master Fund ("Side Pocket Shares").

 

 James Keyes, Chairman of the Company, commented: "The fee reduction is welcome news for the Company, given the significant proportion of the Company's NAV represented by side pocket investments".
