Dr. Hans Peter Boller passed away

Zurich, 10 November 2014 – Secquaero Advisors AG and Schroders regret to inform that Dr. Hans Peter Boller, founding Managing Partner and Vice Chairman of Secquaero Advisors AG, unexpectedly passed away on November 6, 2014.

Dr. Hans Peter Boller led the consulting and quantitative risk modeling units of Secquaero, an Investment Advisory and Consulting firm focused on insurance linked securitization, solvency and risk management. He was instrumental in building Secquaero and essential in establishing the company as a frontrunner in placing insurance risks with the capital market.

Peter Boller started his career at Tillinghast where he worked in risk management and actuarial functions in London and Cologne. He established the firm’s non-life presence, particularly in the German market, and provided consulting services to various European and Japanese insurance and reinsurance clients. Subsequently, he joined Zurich Insurance Company as Chief Actuary for the group’s reinsurance businesses. Prior to establishing Secquaero in 2007 he was the Chief Risk Officer and a member of the Executive Management of Converium.

Throughout his career Peter was intensely involved in topics of importance to the insurance industry with a particular focus on risk and capital measurement. He was the founding chairman of the International Actuarial Association’s (IAA) Subcommittee on Reinsurance, Vice Chair of the Insurance Regulation Committee of the IAA and Chairman of ASTIN. As a member of the IAA Solvency Party he co-authored the Blue Book “A Global Framework for Insurer Solvency Assessment”. He was also a founding member of the CRO Forum, a professional risk management group within the Geneva Association, the leading Think Tank of the insurance industry.

“We are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of Peter”, said Dirk Lohmann, Chairman and Managing Partner at Secquaero. “To all of us at Secquaero and Schroders, who knew him, Peter was an esteemed colleague and a long time personal friend. We will thoroughly miss his warmth, wit and intelligence, which have always been a great source of support throughout the years we worked together. Our deepest sympathies are with his family during this difficult time.”

Peter Boller is survived by his wife and their three children.
