Solution

AXIS Life Aggregate Stop Loss Reinsurance

Reinsurance
Our reinsurance solution protects insurers from tail risks arising from extreme mortality, for example, those envisaged by Solvency II. The reinsurance premium for this type of protection is usually a small percentage of reinsurance cover provided. But unlike quota share, it leaves the insurer with the upside of any positive claims experience, creating a far more cost effective solution for them. This solution offers capital relief, especially for insurers regulated under Solvency II. 
 
Typical structures for life reinsurance deals include:
  • Quota share/surplus 
  • Aggregate stop loss 
  • Per person excess of loss 
  • Catastrophe excess of loss
