Are primary insurance markets losing sight of the scale of the risks they underwrite? That is a real fear in today’s COVID-19 world in which reinsurers need to do more to understand the exposures they assume from their direct clients. Average return on equity measures are declining consistently, down to breakeven levels, according to A.M. Best. That performance is attributable to unfavourable loss reserve development.
The COVID-19 pandemic has opened up a Pandora’s box of significant coverage gaps that exist for business continuity losses. In 2020, pandemic BI losses amounted to a huge $11 trillion and on the back of ever-increasing globalisation, could reach as much as $23.5 trillion over the next three decades, according to some estimates.
Our new report explores how portfolio analytics can help casualty underwriters in managing and understanding their exposures.
For Your Information
We have recently set up a new account system as part of our new website launch and we have received some questions about the account, so we wanted to take the time to answer your questions.
The new free account log-in system on the website is designed to allow you to access all of Russell Group's white papers, infographics and collateral with ease and little hassle. It allows you to bookmark articles and it view more dedicated content (e.g. aviation articles, marine articles) on the Russell Thinking page.
The details that you give us will not be given to any third-party groups and you can opt out of all Russell emails and still enjoy using the new site and downloading Russell collateral.
