Reinsurers Face Challenging Market Conditions

Novarica Details Latest Business and Technology Trends in New Report

Boston, MA (Feb. 3, 2017) – In a reinsurance market made competitive by years of soft market conditions followed sharp hardening periods, huge losses from man-made and natural catastrophes, and open-ended liabilities like asbestos and terrorism, coming up with creative technology solutions is increasingly important for reinsurers.

In its latest Business and Technology Trends report, research and advisory firm Novarica provides an overview of the reinsurance business and technology landscape for 2017 and beyond.

�As reinsurers try to adapt to changing market conditions, we�re seeing more firms looking into more advanced business intelligence and modeling solutions, and replacing core systems,� said Mitch Wein, Vice President of Research and Consulting and co-author of Novarica�s new report. �In addition, many small and midsized reinsurers are using the soft market as an opportunity to leverage partnerships with hedge funds to grow their capital pool and gain access to business they wouldn�t have otherwise.�

Previews of the report are available here.
