Back in December, the Federal Insurance Office released its first report on the global reinsurance market, creatively titled “The Breadth and Scope of the Global Reinsurance Market and the Critical Role Such Market Plays in Supporting Insurance in the United States.”
At 47 pages, it’s a surprisingly quick read. (Spoiler alert: the global reinsurance market is big and plays a critical role in supporting insurance in the U.S.) What’s more, it provides a nice overview of the history of reinsurance and its various forms. So, no more citing to Second Circuit opinions for that background stuff.
I know many in the industry were–and still are–very concerned about just what the Federal Insurance Office will actually do. If reports like this are any indication of what the FIO will be doing, I don’t think we have anything to worry about…
