Ceded Reinsurance Solutions: Global Edition
2023 Solutionscape: Powered by VendorMatch
The core business of insurance companies is to manage the risks from the policies that they write. Often, to reduce their overall risk profile, they will transfer some amount of that risk to a reinsurer. To serve this purpose, an insurer uses various techniques and reinsurance programs, which usually are supported by a system that is integrated to its core systems.
A ceded reinsurance solution is platform that focuses on outward or ceding reinsurance contracts, and it may have limited or no functionality for assumed (inward) reinsurance. They are used to store and track information about reinsurance contracts in place, to identify policies that are covered by reinsurance, to calculate premiums and commissions, to identify claims that are covered by reinsurance and track the recoverables, and to provide the data needed for internal and regulatory reporting.
The report profiles 12 ceded reinsurance solutions from 11 vendors. Each profile presents information about the vendor and solution, professional services and support capabilities, customer base, functionality and lines of business deployed, technology and partnerships, and implementations and cost. Each profile includes a table outlining the available end-to-end components and the features and functions available within the systems. The profiles also include a list of in-production and supported lines of business and the number of clients currently using the system for those products. Additionally, the profiles include a table of technology options.
This report only includes solutions offered on a standalone basis. In other words, it does not cover end-to-end solutions which have embedded reinsurance functionality such as policy administration or claims systems that include some reinsurance functionality within them.
