To begin, here are a few insights into the demographics of our reinsurance market survey respondents
As you'll see below, the majority of respondents have responsibility for, or provide input to, reinsurance and retrocession buying decisions
We began by asking respondents their price expectations for the following lines of business at the 1/1 2019 renewals
We continued by determining what amount or type of industry-wide catastrophic losses could meaningfully turn the market
We were keen to understand how respondents saw ILS’ influence playing out in the near-future
Our next question identified the primary focus of reinsurance buying in Jan 2019
Determining the key factors that protection buyers consider when choosing a reinsurance counterparty was the next logical step
Finally, what about demand? Will protection buyers be securing more or less reinsurance and from which sources?
We hope you've enjoyed this insight into the state of the reinsurance market and found the results interesting and perhaps useful.
