K-Cessions sidecar details

Hannover Re’s Managing Director for Retrocessions & Capital Markets, Henning Ludolphs, has described the reinsurer’s K-Cessions quota share retro reinsurance sidecar facility as “the backbone of our retrocession program.”

At the start of 2015 the reinsurer increased the size of its K-Cessions sidecar vehicle to $400m, up from the previous $320m.

The K-Cessions retro quota share facility has evolved over the years, acting as a sidecar facility that allows Hannover Re to share a portion of its book with capital markets investors, while also providing a flexible source of retrocessional protection.
