Retroactive Reinsurance

In today’s difficult investment environment, opportunities that offer sufficient security as well as promising returns are scarce – or non-existent. Low investment returns coupled with claims inflation threaten to undermine profitability, especially in long-tail business. At the same time, qualitative and quantitative demands on risk and capital management have risen, while supervisory authorities, rating agencies and investors expect greater transparency and efficiency.


It all adds up to tremendous pressure on primary insurers to optimise their risk and capital situation. And it puts the focus on technical reserves – both for ongoing business and for classic run-off – and the investments that cover them.
