February 9, 2022 –The reinsurance business faces multiple challenges. Years of soft market conditions followed by sudden and sharp hardening periods, tremendous losses from man-made and natural catastrophes, and open-ended liabilities (e.g., asbestos, terrorism) are putting intense pressure on reinsurers. These difficult conditions challenge reinsurers to adapt and come up with creative solutions. Reinsurers control their risk through sophisticated risk analysis, careful pricing, setting terms and conditions, and capital management—including retrocessions, whenever needed.
This Impact Report provides an overview of reinsurers’ business and technology issues, data about the marketplace, and examples of recent technology investments made by reinsurers. This report is part of a series on key business and technology trends in specific lines of business in the U.S. insurance industry, and draws from conversations with Aite-Novarica Group clients and Insurance Technology Research Council members, as well as secondary published sources.
