Hello and welcome to the second edition of The ReInsurer, the weekly publication we are bringing you through the month of September dedicated to coverage of the reinsurance sector and the issues that will shape upcoming renewal negotiations.

Covid-19 has meant the usual exchange of news and views around the hotel lobbies of Monte Carlo will not take place this year. While the Autumn conference circuit will not take place in physical form this year, we’ve got you covered through a series of events during our inaugural #REinsuranceMonth.

Published each Tuesday between now and the end of September, The ReInsurer will bring you the best of our coverage, with exclusive news, analysis, industry leader insights and highlights of the many video interviews, podcasts and virtual roundtables we have lined up. 

Download Issue Two: 8-14 September


In our second issue, we bring you a series of exclusives from across the global reinsurance marketplace.

We reveal Aeolus Capital Management’s plans for a new rated vehicle, RenRe’s latest move in the Lloyd’s legacy space and Anibal Moreno’s plans for a new alternative risk MGA.

Alongside this, we bring extensive insights from reinsurance and broking leaders as to what we may see at the 1 January renewals.

In our first virtual panel discussion, senior industry executives explored the sector’s response to Covid-19 and what needs to happen next. 

We know you will find value in The ReInsurer, but we have not given up the day job.

Although we will not be publishing our regular London and New York daily editions today – or the remaining Tuesdays in September, when you’ll receive The ReInsurer instead – you will receive our dailies as usual on all other weekdays, as well as our regular breaking news alerts.

Here are a few highlights of the second issue of The ReInsurer
