What is reinsurance?

Reinsurance is at the heart of risk management, it enables insurers to cover their risks by ceding part of them, in order to mutualize them worldwide. SCOR covers major P&C risks including large catastrophe risks (both natural and man-made catastrophes: hurricanes, floods, volcanic eruptions, explosions, fires, plane crashes, etc.), and Life biometric risks (trends and shocks on mortality, longevity and morbidity lines, both long term and short term). The challenge for reinsurance professionals consists in identifying, selecting, assessing and pricing risks, in order to be able to absorb them.
