At the “Insurance Insider Honours”, held in London on 6 September 2012 and organised by Insurance Insider magazine, SCOR was named “Risk Carrier of the Year”, which is the event’s most comprehensive distinction for a reinsurance company.
 
SCOR had already been named “Reinsurance Company of the Year” at the Reactions London Market Awards in July 2012. These distinctions, awarded by insurance and reinsurance industry professionals throughout the world, reward the performance and strategy of the Group, which notably recorded very good results in the first half 2012, and has been upgraded to “A+” or equivalent by all of the rating agencies over the past few months.
 
 
Denis Kessler, Chairman and CEO of SCOR, comments: “I would like to thank the professionals of the insurance and reinsurance industries for giving us these awards. They constitute further recognition of the skills and dynamism of an entire Group and its teams. They also salute SCOR’s ability to achieve the objectives set by its strategic plan “Strong Momentum V1.1”, which were reaffirmed again yesterday at our Investors’ Day 2012.
