TREATY P&C

Our Treaty P&C teams provide proportional and non-proportional reinsurance in many forms across Property and Casualty Treaties:

 
  • Property treaties: covering damage to underlying assets and direct or contingent business interruption losses caused by fire or other perils, including natural catastrophes
  • Motor: covering original risks of motor property damage and bodily injury
  • Casualty treaties: covering general liability, product liability and professional indemnity
