Ryan Investment Holdings

Ryan Investment Holdings, LLC (“RIH”) was formed as an investment holding company designed to aggregate the funds of Ryan Specialty and Geneva Ryan Holdings, LLC (“GRH”) for investment in Geneva Re Partners, LLC (“GRP”). GRH was formed as an investment holding company designed to aggregate investment funds of Patrick G. Ryan and other affiliated investors. One affiliated investor is an LLC Unitholder and a director of the Company, and another is an LLC Unitholder and employee of the Company. Ryan Specialty does not consolidate GRH as the Company does not have a direct investment in or variable interest in this entity.

The Company holds a 47% interest in RIH and GRH holds a 53% interest in RIH. RIH has a 50% non-controlling interest in GRP, and the other 50% is owned by Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company (“Nationwide”). GRP wholly owns Geneva Re, Ltd (“Geneva Re”), a Bermuda-regulated reinsurance company. RIH is considered a related party variable interest entity under common control with the Company. The Company is not most closely associated with the variable interest entity and therefore does not consolidate RIH. The assets of RIH are restricted to settling obligations of RIH, pursuant to Delaware limited liability company statutes.

The Company is not required to contribute any additional capital to RIH, and its maximum exposure to loss on the equity method investment is the total invested capital of $47.0 million. The Company may be exposed to losses arising from the equity method investment, as a result of underwriting losses recognized at Geneva Re or losses on Geneva Re’s investment portfolio. RIH has committed to contribute additional capital to GRP over the next four years. Patrick G. Ryan, through a trust of which he is the beneficiary and co-trustee, has committed to personally fund any such additional capital contributions. Any such additional capital contributions under this commitment will not affect the relative ownership of RIH’s common equity.

Geneva Re

The Company has a service agreement with Geneva Re to provide both administrative services to, as well as disburse payments for costs directly incurred by, Geneva Re. These direct costs include compensation expenses incurred by employees of Geneva Re. The Company had $0.1 million and $0.2 million due from Geneva Re under this agreement as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

Ryan Re Services Agreement with Geneva Re and Nationwide

Ryan Re, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, is party to a services agreement with Geneva Re to provide, among other services, certain underwriting and administrative services to Geneva Re. Ryan Re receives a service fee equal to 115% of the administrative costs incurred by Ryan Re in performing these services to Geneva Re. Revenue earned from Geneva Re, net of applicable constraints, was $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. Receivables due from Geneva Re under this agreement, net of applicable constraints, were $0.3 million and $2.0 million as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

Company Leasing of Corporate Jets

In the ordinary course of its business, the Company charters executive jets for business purposes from Executive Jet Management (“EJM”), a third-party service provider. Mr. Ryan indirectly owns aircraft that he leases to EJM for EJM’s charter operations for which he receives remuneration from EJM. The Company pays market rates for chartering aircraft through EJM, unless the particular aircraft chartered is Mr. Ryan’s, in which case the Company receives a discount below market rates. Historically, the Company has

been able to charter Mr. Ryan’s aircraft and make use of this discount. The Company recognized expense related to business usage of aircraft of $0.5 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively.
