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

 

 

Key findings

  • Reinsurance placements at January 1, 2019, highlight a pricing gap between accounts with peak peril exposures or poor loss records and the rest, with many reinsurers placing emphasis on the quality of client counterparties.
  • In property catastrophe renewals, cedants with good loss records and a disciplined, early renewal process achieved risk-adjusted rate reductions, while loss impacted accounts are seeing upward pricing across a number of lines.
  • The insurance-linked securities (ILS) market faces a more comprehensive test in the absence of a major pricing uptick following significant loss erosion for some funds in both 2017 and 2018, and some funds are challenged in attracting new investors.
  • Some primary lines are seeing significantly larger rate increases than treaty reinsurance business.
  • Reinsurers have benefited from increases in premium ceded by large carriers, notably through large new pro rata cessions where terms have slightly tilted in reinsurers’ favour.
