John Uprichard appointed Managing Director of new company

Kane, the largest global independent insurance manager, and a leading provider of Insurance Linked Securities (ILS) and Life, Pension and Investment (LPI) administration services, has announced the establishment of Kane LPI Solutions Limited (Kane LPI Solutions).

Incorporated in Bermuda, the new company is licensed by the Bermuda Monetary Authority under the Investment Funds Act 2006 as a fund administrator and will operate as the head office for the firm’s life, pension and investment administration activities.

Kane’s LPI Solutions team provides turnkey administration solutions to an extensive global client base in the investment, pension and insurance sectors. Services encompass all aspects of the product life-cycle, spanning the initial design and development of the solution, through to the product build, launch and ongoing administration. In addition, Kane LPI Solutions has expanded its product offering and is now able to provide comprehensive fund administration services from Bermuda.

Kane has also announced the appointment of John Uprichard as Managing Director of Kane LPI Solutions. He was formerly Head of Business for LPI at Kane and will report directly to Simon Hinshelwood, Group CEO of Kane. Commenting on the new company, Simon Hinshelwood said: “The decision to set up Kane LPI Solutions reflects the scale that our life, pension and investment administration division
has now achieved. John and his team have done an excellent job broadening our LPI offering over the last 18 months, and they have achieved a number of major client wins in recent months. We fully expect 2013 to be a very strong year for the LPI Solutions team.”

John Uprichard added: “In the current financial environment, we see significant opportunities for further growth in the LPI arena. Using a third party administrator that combines expertise and the right technology platform can prove a much more cost effective and efficient way to get a new product to market. Setting up Kane LPI Solutions gives us the perfect means of capitalizing on these opportunities.”
