By Kenneth Araullo

Marsh McLennan reinsurance specialist Guy Carpenter has announced the creation of the Capital & Advisory group within its Global Capital Solutions unit.

The firm also appointed Alexander Schnieders (pictured above) as global head of Capital & Advisory, reporting to Laurent Rousseau, CEO of Europe, IMEA, and Global Capital Solutions.

Guy Carpenter welcomed the newly formed Capital & Advisory group which aims to enhance the firm’s services for C-suite clients worldwide and attract more capital to re/insurance risks.

This new team will focus on raising capital for clients, advising on capital and M&A transactions, creating new market capacity, and supporting new company formation.

New global head Schnieders joins Guy Carpenter from Teneo Holdings, where he led the Financial Institutions Group and co-headed M&A. In his previous role, he managed Teneo’s US insurance practice, overseeing strategy, business planning, deal sourcing, and executing capital raising and M&A transactions.

Schnieders has also worked at Goldman Sachs and Perella Weinberg Partners in similar capacities.

Rousseau highlighted the addition of the Capital & Advisory team to the Global Capital Solutions unit as Guy Carpenter continues its expansion.

“The addition of a Capital & Advisory team to our already strong Global Capital Solutions unit, which includes cat bonds and other insurance-linked securities through GC Securities and legacy products through Global Risk Solutions, creates an offering that is unmatched in the industry. With Alexander’s extensive background and strong relationships, the team is well positioned to serve our clients,” Rousseau said.

“I am delighted to join Guy Carpenter in this newly created role. I have a long-standing respect for the Guy Carpenter team and confidence we will provide clients a differentiated offering to help them achieve their risk, capital and strategic goals,” Schnieders said.
