The maiden issue of the Asia Reinsurance Pulse was launched today at the 13th SIRC, which had attracted a record 1,000 delegates from close to 50 countries.
Sponsored by the SRA, the Asia Reinsurance Pulse is a new annual research publication that aims to provide a unique overview of Asia-Pacific’s USD 50 billion non-life reinsurance market.
SRA Chairman Thomas Lillelund said: “Through Asia Reinsurance Pulse, the SRA demonstrates its commitment to improving the transparency of Asia-Pacific reinsurance markets as well as to facilitating and encouraging an informed dialogue between market participants. This is particularly important in light of intense market competition and growing regulatory challenges, as identified by Asia Reinsurance Pulse.”
The survey was based on in-depth interviews conducted by Dr Schanz, Alms & Company with 48 senior executives of 41 regional and international reinsurance companies and intermediaries operating in the Asia-Pacific region. Commenting on the strengths of this face-to-face interview approach, the SRA Chairman said that this has enabled the interviewers to probe deeper to clarify responses from the participating executives. Furthermore, by including both global and regional players, leaders and followers as well as generalists and specialists, the end result is that the Pulse has been able to capture a broad yet nuanced picture of the marketplace.
