In April 2008, 3i, a world leader in private equity, announced a new partnership with Hyperion Insurance Group, investing £50m for a 26% minority stake in the company.

3i is supporting Hyperion as it enters its next phase of growth - expanding both the range of products it provides and the territories in which it operates.

David Howden, Chief Executive of Hyperion, said of the transaction: “3i embraces the entrepreneurial spirit of our group and shares our ambition to build a world-leading specialist insurance business. I believe 3i will enhance our entrepreneurial flair and our ability to continue to attract and retain the very best people.”

Gordon Hague, 3i Director, added: “We’re thrilled to be backing Hyperion: a global success story and a leader in the specialist insurance sector. Based on our experience within the financial services sector and our track record partnering with ambitious businesses to drive growth, we’re confident that 3i can add immense value.”
