The Sophisticated Underwriter’s Guide to “Getting Back to Basics” in
23rd and 24th of June 2003, Kingsway Hall, Great Queen Street, London
In a world of falling investment markets, escalating catastrophe losses and the fallout of 11th September, it is more important than ever that reinsurers minimise their exposures
by underwriting profitably. If your policy wording does not reflect your exact intent, your company's balance sheet may later reflect unwelcome surprises… as current results have shown. Swiss Re estimates that the industry has lost some US $200bn in capital since 2000, against 26bn raised in 2001 and a further US $19bn in 2002.
As reinsurers are squeezed on all sides and shareholders demand vastly improved returns, underwriters are finding themselves under pressure to increase the company's profitability through skilfull underwriting with a mimimum exposure to risk. No underwriter can afford to ignore the lessons of the past, nor to meet the challenges of the future.
