FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LONDON - JULY 29, 2020 08:46 AM (EDT)
AM Best will host its annual reinsurance market briefing as a virtual event on Sunday, 13 September 2020, 10:15 a.m.–11:45 a.m. (CEST). This follows the cancellation of the 2020 Rendez-Vous de Septembre due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event, presented as a complimentary webinar, will give attendees a unique opportunity to hear reinsurance market insight and opinion from a panel of senior executives and analytical leaders of AM Best’s international offices. AM Best currently maintains a stable market segment outlook on the global reinsurance industry, owing to a favorable pricing environment and reinsurers’ expected ability to absorb underwriting losses and investment volatility resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar will explore the pandemic’s ongoing impacts to the sector. Discussion topics also will include:


  • AM Best’s trend analysis on the global reinsurance sector;

  • Global reinsurance outlook and the drivers of future rating movements;

  • Capital management challenges;

  • Impact of alternative capital and insurance-linked securities; and

  • Key rating issues impacting all reinsurers.

Register now for the upcoming event.

Attendees can submit advance questions during registration or by emailing webinars@ambest.com. Playback will be available to registered viewers shortly after the event.
