Hyperion

As industry specialists, we have developed a wide range of ideas, solutions and innovative policy wordings to provide the most effective possible risk transfer solutions.

We engage with the client to understand their business, culture, concerns, and priorities, and then design and negotiate cover accordingly.

Our philosophy is simple; We never forget that we serve the client, not our markets.

ABOUT US

With operations and licenses in multiple domiciles, Hyperion has the ability to provide its clients with sophisticated risk management tools and structures to complement their business, wealth and estate planning needs.

As an insurance manager, we work closely with the various regulatory authorities within the twelve jurisdictions in which we operate, and maintain excellent working relationships with the various service providers providing third-party assistance to our captive clients, including banks, investment managers, lawyers, actuaries and reinsurers.

As a broker our approach is unique because we combine the physical presence of a dedicated local broker based in Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, the Turks and Caicos Islands and as a reinsurance broker in the Dominican Republic and Panama with the subject matter expertise, experience and market leverage of some of the world’s major brokers in London. Our local presence allows us to understand and suitably monitor the ever-changing legislative and regulatory environment of the jurisdictions from which our clients operate. We see our role not just as one of execution but, more importantly, as a trusted advisor to assist you with the natural progression of our clients’ businesses.
