Course overview

In a nutshell reinsurance is best thought of as “insurance for insurance companies,” a way for a primary insurer to protect against unforeseen or extraordinary losses. It serves to limit liability on specific risks, to increase individual insurers’ capacity and to share liability when losses overwhelm the primary insurer’s resources. It also helps insurers stabilize their business in the face of the wide swings in profit and loss margins inherent in the insurance business.

However the industry is much more complex than one statement, professionals working within the industry are tending to specialise in one area and lose touch with the trends and challenges faced by this global business as a whole. Whether you are new to the industry or need to get back in touch with the dynamics of the industry as a whole, then this course is for you.
