As an innovator spanning decades, E.W. “Ted” Blanch, after joining E.W. Blanch & Co. in 1958, became CEO in 1977 and held the position until 2000. The company was sold in 2001. He then formed Ted Blanch & Associates, a consultancy to the reinsurance industry.
To help level the playing field in the reinsurance industry, Blanch and a team of highly experienced industry executives recently founded COIN Re. The new company, whose name is an acronym of Client Owned Intermediary Nexus, is based on a pricing and ownership model radically different from reinsurance broker industry norms.
