COVID-19 reinsurance market survey update – June 2020

Covid-19 reinsurance market survey updateThe results of our COVID-19 Market Survey update are based on responses from hundreds of market participants, of which over 58% have responsibility for, or provide input to, reinsurance and retrocession buying decisions.

While 25.9% of these respondents were hopeful that the full impact of the pandemic could be understood in less than two years, 60.4% agreed that it could take up to five years.

There was broad consensus in other areas too, as the majority of survey answers indicated that re/insurers are more concerned about the affect of COVID-19 on the underwriting side of their business, rather than on the investment side.

Global reinsurance market survey – H2 2018

Reinsurance market survey resultsWe polled our readership in the second-half of 2018 to find out their forecasts for the approaching reinsurance renewals at the end of the year.

Over 62% of the respondents provide input to or are responsible for reinsurance buying decisions and results suggest that market conditions may remain challenging for some.

Responses suggested that pricing was expected to be relatively flat across most lines of reinsurance business.

But there was an expectation for some significant rate increases in U.S property catastrophe risks following the losses of 2017, retrocessional areas of protection, as well as certain under-performing or emerging lines of business.

Regardless of the reasons, a large majority of respondents planned to purchase a similar level of reinsurance protection or a little more at the January 2019 renewals, suggesting a slight uptick in demand.
