Munich Re Reserve Risk Financing, Inc.

We are a Houston, Texas based, wholly-owned subsidiary of Munich Re, a AA- rated global insurance company operating across all risk lines. 

Munich Re Reserve Risk Financing, Inc. ("MRRF") provides a unitranche alternative to combinations of bank RBL and junior/mezzanine debt that is:

  • non-dilutive;
  • fixed-rate; with
  • no borrowing base redeterminations.

We target established middle market upstream operators seeking to:

  • accelerate production growth through conversion of PNP/PUD reserves;
  • increase reserves/production through strategic asset acquisitions; and/or
  • rationalize capital structures.

To comply with and support the Paris climate agreement, Munich Re is targeting net-zero carbon emissions from risks with the upstream oil & gas industry by 2050. 

Within the pathway to reach this goal, Munich Re will continue to support clients in the upstream oil & gas sector with solutions that enable our clients to achieve their own ESG goals, e.g., by realizing carbon capture and sequestration projects that contribute to mitigating climate change.
