Softening reinsurance market threat greater than opportunities
Wednesday, 07 15 2015, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: World
Today’s capital rich reinsurance industry is positioned well for innovation and expansion into emerging markets, but analysts at RBC Capital Markets (RBC) feel the pressures from a softening reinsurance sector overshadow the scope for opportunity, for the near term at least.
Analysts from RBC recently published an equity research report debating the opportunities and challenges for European insurers and reinsurers in emerging, underserved global markets.
But despite noting some positives for companies that attempt to enter emerging business lines, including premium growth and a local presence, RBC indicates concern at the difficulties and demands firms are faced with in the softening reinsurance market environment.
