AM Best Webinar: Rating ILS-Affiliated Collateralized Reinsurers

Monday, April 15, 2019

10:00 a.m. ET

AM Best analysts will examine how they rate ILS-affiliated collateralized reinsurers. Reinsurers of this type are relatively new but are expected to become a larger share of the reinsurance sector as they seek greater operational efficiency, elimination of fronting fees, and more flexibility in tailoring their offerings to cedants.

Panelists include:

  • Emmanuel Modu, managing director, AM Best
  • Wai Tang, director, AM Best

While AM Best analysts rely upon Bests Credit Rating Methodology (BCRM) to rate all insurance companies, some additional issues are considered in the rating process for ILS-affiliated reinsurers. For example, analysts review funding agreements between the ILS funds and the transformer; trust agreements between the rated entity and the transformer, collateral release provisions, agreements that outline 'clawback' provisions, the alignment of interests among various parties involved in the rated collateralized reinsurance company, and other significant elements specific to collateralized reinsurers.
