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

 

 

Key findings

  • Momentum for rate increases on loss-free reinsurance accounts dissipated during the June/July property catastrophe renewals, and in some cases, pricing declined.
  • Although most loss-free Florida property accounts were flat, some saw rate declines of up to -7.5%, as competition for this business was heightened particularly for clients viewed as best in class, and non-traditional players offered layers with reinstatements.
  • Reinsurance lines beyond property catastrophe have seen varied results for the mid-year renewals and where original loss ratios have deteriorated due to sequential years of rate reductions or high loss activity, reinsurance pricing has firmed.
  • Excess capital led to a surplus of capacity both from traditional and insurance-linked securities markets.
  • 2017 natural catastrophe loss estimates have stabilised, which typically remain below initial projections, and often retained net by larger insurers.
