There’s a wealth of information to be found if you know where to look, giving you valuable insights into the re/insurer’s performance and the risk you take on with your choice of business partners.

  • As a reinsurer, you can learn how well an insurer’s business performs – whilst the risk may look good, If the overall business is consistently loss making, you can end up taking a share of those losses.
  • For reinsurance buyers, the financial health of a potential reinsurer is essential: you are buying their promise to pay their share of any losses. You need to be comfortable that they have the necessary financial strength and will be there to make payment when the time comes.
  • Brokers and MGAs need to be confident that the selected carriers offer suitable security to write your client’s business. If you are placing their reinsurance, the annual accounts can reveal how well their existing programmes are performing.

Simple analysis can deepen your understanding.

Do you know how to determine whether an Insurer’s recent top line growth is sustainable and profitable? How can you check if the source of profits is sustainable?

Are you familiar with the basic performance tests which are fundamental to a financial strength ratings, and can you calculate the essential ratios?

How can you determine whether an insurer is adequately reserved?

Does your reinsurer cover its cost of capital?
