From the Great Fire of London to COVID 19: What is next for the global reinsurance market?

The global reinsurance market has in many ways fundamentally remained the same since it’s formative days in Lloyds of London over three hundred years ago. But the rise of big data and growing interest in catastrophic risk as an investment class by pension funds threatens it with disruption.

In this talk, Matt Wolfe, President of Aon Reinsurance Solutions Canada will take you through a short history of reinsurance, including how its evolved to be a critical component of a well-functioning risk trading marketplace and some of the major events  that challenged the industry and spurned it to adapt.

You’ll also gain insight into the current state of the global reinsurance market, and the technological changes that threaten to permanently upend the industry. You’ll also hear firsthand the industry’s challenges old and new: including climate change threatening the profitability of their core property catastrophe business while unforeseen emerging risks like COVID-19 introduce unpredicted exposures. Will the industry innovate and grow or retreat and contract?
