The concept of a specialty reinsurer focusing on long-tailed liabilities was formulated in 2011 with the establishment of a privately funded off shore reinsurance company which transacted over $450 million in assets.


Vista Re was licensed in November 2015 as an insurance company organized under the captive insurance laws of the state of Vermont and established as a protected cell company. The company closed its first transaction in August 2016 with $150 million of assets.
