NEW YORK/LONDON, Aug 10 (Reuters) - British insurance entrepreneur Clive Cowdery is raising money for a fourth investment vehicle, at the same time as his third, U.S.-focused fund is being wound down and its sole asset put up for sale, sources aware of the matter told Reuters. Cowdery, founder of The Resolution Group, is one of UK insurance's biggest names, having spent more than a decade acquiring life insurance companies that were usually closed to new clients and then implementing cost savings to help bolster returns. The new Bermuda-based fund will maintain the same focus by reinsuring closed-book businesses in the United States and Europe, according to two sources aware of the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity as the information isn't public.

Spain's Socialists on Sunday chose former leader and hardliner Pedro Sanchez to head the party again, a vote likely to make it harder for the ruling conservatives to secure the opposition support it needs in parliament to push through legislation. "Although Sanchez was gaining traction over the past week the result comes as a surprise and could introduce political risk again into the Spanish investment case," Exane analysts said in an note to clients.
