Retroactive Reinsurance Solutions
Setting the scene
Of our retroactive reinsurance clients seek for balance sheet certainty
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 optimize their risk and capital situation. This puts the focus on technical reserves – both for ongoing business and for business in run-off – and the tied-up capital with corresponding investments that cover them.
Through retroactive reinsurance, the reinsurer assumes the risks associated with past exposure periods. The reserve risk consists of adverse development (IBNR/IBNER) risk and the risk of accelerated claims pay-outs. Based on your portfolio and strategic goals, we will work with your company’s top decision-makers to structure a cost-effective retroactive solution precisely to your risk management and capital management needs. We offer full risk-transfer reinsurance products that combine the benefits of a loss portfolio transfer (LPT) and adverse development cover (ADC). Our comprehensive, consultative approach gives you the big picture, along with complete cost-benefit transparency.
