Prima originally was formed as Schroder Mortgage Associates in 1992 with Greg White as one
of the founding partners. In 1998 Schroder Mortgage was sold to Conning Asset
Management Company and in 2003, Greg and his long time partner Steven Copulsky,
repurchased the business from Conning and its then new parent company, Swiss
Reinsurance. Today the business remains privately owned. In 2011,
an entity affiliated with Stone Point Capital (www.stonepoint.com) acquired a
50% interest in Prima.
