Catastrophe Reincurance

« Back to Glossary Index

This is a form of insurance written on an excess-of-loss basis to improve the spread of risk against unknown liability concentrations, subject to a single occurrence. The parties settle on a deductible amount to reduce the probable frequency of loss to an acceptable level to the reinsurer, and the severity of loss to a level acceptable to the reinsured company.
