Willis Re has released the April edition of its thrice-annual  update of global reinsurance market conditions.


Key findings

  • 1 April renewals saw the continuation of a broadly flat pricing environment
  • Rapid reload of insurance-linked securities funds following initially overstated Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria losses
  • Continued capital oversupply despite 2017 losses
  • Some modest increases in reinsurance purchases allied to underlying growth delivering real premium growth
  • Dynamic change in reinsurance mergers and acquisitions; large primary carriers have re-entered the reinsurance market, driven by disruptive competition in personal lines and profitability challenges in life insurance
  • Insurance companies continue to assess the impact of reinsurance buying to support earnings and capital management, with the value of reinsurance seen as higher than it has been in recent years
