AuclairRe International Inc

In the midst of a successful career with some of the world’s top reinsurers, Joël decided to instead service small, dynamic, insurers. Thus, he founded AuclairRe in 2006. AuclairRe International, Inc. is a reinsurance intermediary and boutique advisory firm to small, dynamic insurers. AuclairRe places about $15 million of reinsurance annually on behalf of insurers in both the Property/Casualty and the Life/Health/Accident sectors of the industry.

Since its founding, AuclairRe has concluded over $150 million in surplus relief transactions, structured cost-efficient quota share placements across industry sectors, and raised over $500 million of startup capital for its clients. AuclairRe advisory services help clients achieve efficiency and cost-effectiveness, with a focus on underwriting and claims.

Joël Thompson is a member of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP) and is a Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS).
