RiverStone Management Limited (Brighton, Sussex) has selected Sapiens International Corporation’s (Holon, Israel) reinsurance system to replace its existing broker’s ledger for reinsurance business. The company is a member of the RiverStone Europe group, a division of Riverstone Group, a Manchester, N.H.-based group of insurance, reinsurance and service companies specializing in the management of legacy and run-off insurance business portfolios which provide claim resolution, reinsurance recovery and dispute resolution services.

The vendor reports that the maturity and flexibility of the Sapiens Reinsurance product offering were key to RiverStone’s decision. RiverStone also cited Sapiens’ ongoing, successful relationship with the RiverStone U.S. entity as a contributing factor to the selection, according to Sapiens.
