Reinsurance Agreements

Securing Comprehensive Business Arrangements for Cedents and Reinsurers

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

About

Preparing a reinsurance agreement is more demanding than ever. It is no longer enough to sign a short placement slip and assume that potential problems will be ironed out down the road. And while there are many critical issues that need to be addressed up front, contract certainty requirements have narrowed your window of opportunity to address them properly. So you are now in the unenviable position of having to create a comprehensive agreement and while meeting stricter deadlines.

In an environment where the terms and conditions of an agreement can be of greater consequence than the price, the collection of conference materials from the American Conference Institute's 3rd National Forum on Reinsurance Agreements will give you critical insights on:

  • Gaining a competitive advantage through your dispute resolution clause
  • Structuring claims provisions on right to associate, access to records and confidentiality
  • Providing schemes of arrangements and other financial contingencies
  • Ensuring your agreements take new regulatory developments into consideration
