Course overview

Reinsurance industry practices have changed in recent years, placing more and more emphasis and importance on reinsurance contract wordings. It is more apparent that a contract is only an advantage if it exactly reflects what the underwriter intended and the insured expected. If companies want to avoid lengthy and expensive disputes, they must develop clear and thorough reinsurance agreements and avoid frequent and small nuances that can land reinsurance companies in trouble. This programme focuses on advanced, up-to-the-minute issues of reinsurance contracts.

I enjoyed the course especially each paper not being more than 45 minutes. The short duration of each paper helped sustain my interest to the very end.

Content, presentation and the speakers were all good, I think if there were particular topics that attendees wanted to discuss the speakers would have included them as the group felt quite informal.
