At this time of year all eyes are beginning to turn towards the end of year reinsurance and retrocession renewal negotiations.

But in 2020, the industry’s time has been heavily occupied with adjusting to the new reality that is Covid-19, the dislocation in financial markets and the losses the pandemic has been driving through insurance and reinsurance markets, as well as the threat of further disruption that future waves of the coronavirus may bring.

Covid-19 has proved to be an event that hit every side and corner of the business model and market: underwriting and assets, life and non-life, traditional and also alternative capital.

Coming after consecutive years of major catastrophe losses and with one of the most active hurricane seasons ever now anticipated, the now hardening reinsurance rate environment promises to make renewal negotiations both interesting and also challenging.

So, in this webcast, kindly supported by Kroll Bond Rating Agency, we’re looking to dive into a few of the key topics that may influence the renewal negotiations and set the stage for 2021 and beyond.


The live and free-to-attend webcast event will be held at 10am EST (3pm BST) on September 10th. It will also be available on-demand, so if you can’t make the live broadcast it’s still worth registering for the webcast.

Our expert panellists will discuss the state of the reinsurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS) market as thoughts turn to the year-end renewals, as well as what to look out for in a COVID-19 world.

Registration is free and attendees can expect a vibrant discussion on some of the key issues that may influence end of year negotiations and set the stage for 2021, with a chance for Q&A at the end of the session.

Joining us for the webcast are:

  • Niklaus Hilti, CEO & Chief Investment Officer, Credit Suisse Insurance Linked Strategies.
  • Pina Albo, Chief Executive Officer, Hamilton Group.
  • Peter Giacone, Managing Director and Global Head of Insurance, Kroll Bond Rating Agency.
  • Peter DiFiore, Managing Director, Neuberger Berman.

We hope you will be able to join us for the webcast, please register now to secure your free attendance.
