Gilles Meyer, CEO of SCOR Global Life, comments, "The Redmayne awards are yet again a very important recognition for SCOR and are a great motivation for SCOR Global Life to continue to strengthen our traditional protection business strategy in the United Kingdom and Ireland, two of the most important life markets in the world.
 
Simon Pearson, Head of SCOR Global Life UK comments, “I am delighted to get this market recognition from one of the most prestigious Life reports. The whole UK team has worked very hard to merit such a distinguished acknowledgment. Going forward we will further accentuate our mortality and income protection propositions and reinforce our leading position in the critical illness domain.
 
The Redmayne report is published annually by Redmayne Consulting (which specialises in UK and Irish Life and Protection business). The premier commercial report in this field is based on a survey of the key reinsurance buyers from the UK and Ireland. The survey takes into account value added by the reinsurer, the positive or negative impact of the reinsurer on the market, and the standard of support services offered by the reinsurer (including underwriting advice, paying claims, general understanding and quality of support, and pricing research). 
 
SCOR Global Life UK provides reinsurance partnerships for the individual protection lines, namely Life, Critical Illness and Income Protection. SCOR Global Life UK provides cost-effective insurance solutions to the broader market.
