Press Release

Global Atlantic Appoints Edward Root to Oversee Pension Risk Transfer Business, Continues to Grow Reinsurance Strategy

Issued by Global Atlantic Financial Group

May 6, 2021

HAMILTON, Bermuda--Global Atlantic Financial Group, a leading annuity and life insurance company, today announced that it has appointed Edward Root as Managing Director leading the firm’s growing pension risk transfer (PRT) reinsurance business. Mr. Root will report to Manu Sareen, President of Institutional Markets, Global Atlantic, and Chief Executive Officer, Global Atlantic Re Limited.

Mr. Root joins an Institutional Markets team that has completed over $75 billion in M&A and reinsurance transactions across block, flow and PRT reinsurance since inception.

“I’m excited to join Global Atlantic as it seeks to grow its PRT business,” Mr. Root said. “The company’s focus on tailored solutions coupled with its financial strength and transaction expertise, make it an appealing business partner for companies seeking options to free capital by lowering expenses or de-risk their exposure to future pension liabilities.”

Mr. Root has over 20 years of experience advising large pension plan sponsors and has worked on more than 1,000 PRT transactions, including recent large transactions such as JC Penney, Lockheed Martin, GE, Baxter and Weyerhaeuser. Most recently, he served as Managing Director at Willis Towers Watson and head of the consulting firm’s PRT group.

“Global Atlantic has quickly grown its PRT reinsurance business, and by bringing Edward to our team, we are reaffirming our commitment to the PRT space,” said Mr. Sareen. “We are excited to have him on board. With Ed’s addition and the recent promotions of Darryl Herrick and Jason Kao as co-heads of block and flow reinsurance, we continue to invest in and grow our leading block, flow and PRT reinsurance franchise.”

With Global Atlantic now a majority-owned subsidiary of KKR, its institutional business has even greater access to capital. The relationship with KKR also provides complementary investment management expertise that supports and expands the company’s ability to deliver institutional solutions tailored specifically to client needs.
