Bermuda - Increase in reinsurance registrations
Friday, 04 06 2018, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: World
Registrations for the first two months of 2018 include 11 reinsurers – which include three Class E Long-Term (life) commercial reinsurers and one general business Class 4 general business commercial reinsurer – and one intermediary. This compares to five new reinsurers (and no intermediaries) recorded for the same period last year. Class 4 and Class E reinsurers are the largest entities by size on the Bermuda register.
Craig Swan, BMA Managing Director, Supervision (Insurance) says, “This increased reinsurance activity follows on the heels of the third anniversary of Bermuda being placed on the National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ (NAIC) Qualified Jurisdiction list (effective 1 January 2015), as well as the second anniversary of Bermuda achieving full equivalence under all three Articles of Solvency II (effective 24th March 2016).”
“The BMA is pleased to see these increased reinsurance registrations, despite challenging market conditions,” Swan says.
