Munich Re at SIRC2022

Munich Re is proud to be supporting the 18th Singapore International Reinsurance Conference

    alt txt



    We live in a world where macroeconomic turbulence is challenging insurance markets - extreme inflation, rising interest rates and asset slumps currently pose challenges for the entire insurance industry alongside burdens from the war in Ukraine. 

    In some reinsurance segments, capacity shortages are emerging in the short term. Yet at the same time, demand is on the rise; the bottom line being that the global property-casualty reinsurance market will grow at least as strongly as the primary insurance market until 2024.

    Solutions for a Sustainable Future

    Weather-related natural catastrophes such as heatwaves, droughts, wildfires or floods in many parts of the world have recently made it apparent that climate change is humankind’s greatest challenge in the long term.  

    Given the losses incurred, it is necessary to develop a deeper understanding of these events now in order to be able to take better precautions. Insurers also have to gear their risk management to this reality, with Solutions for a Sustainable Future.
