RiverStone has reached tentative agreement for first Vermont captive acquisition

RiverStone, the U.S. insurance runoff specialist of the Fairfax insurance group, is pleased to announce a tentative agreement to acquire Western Property & Casualty Insurance Company (Western P&C), to be effective this August 2022.  

Western P&C was formed in Vermont to support a group of companies (which included companies engaged in energy production) as to its automobile liability, general liability and workers’ compensation exposures, on a deductible reimbursement basis.

The shareholders of Western P&C will enter into a stock purchase agreement with Fairfax. The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation has approved the acquisition.

Matt Kunish, Chief Business Development Officer, RiverStone said: “I am pleased to announce RiverStone’s first venture into the Vermont captive community. This is an exciting step for RiverStone as we look to take advantage of the various opportunities the Vermont captive market has to offer.”
