GS1: Views from Inside the Hard Market

For over a decade, we have wondered when or even IF the reinsurance market would harden; some questioned if the concept of hard and soft market cycles existed.  But this year, we now have a sort of Grey Swan upon us:

  • The “Everything Bubble” Has Burst
  • Inflation hit its highest levels in 25 years
  • And there’s Social Inflation Too!
  • Investors from Inside and Outside the Industry Are Pulling Back
  • The Reinsurance Market Has Seen 6 Straight Years of Poor Results
  • Reinsurance Markets Left the Business or a Segment with Limited New Entrants

Our panel of Executives has been operating inside the reinsurance industry during this history-making time.  We will hear how each of them have navigated these troubled waters and explore what they see for the path ahead.

GS2: P&C Industry Outlook – An Analyst View

The last 18 months have been a time of significant change in the P&C Insurance industry. With the upheaval of the global pandemic receding, the industry faced a turbulent macro-economic environment with gyrations in asset prices, demand supply chain disruptions, swings in fiscal and monetary policy, and increases in inflation and interest rates not seen in decades. Within the industry, companies faced shrinking reinsurance capacity, hard market prices, significant balance sheet deterioration, heightened catastrophe activity, and uncertain future loss and frequency trends.

This panel will discuss and analyze the drivers of recent industry results and the future trends that will shape the industry’s outlook. On the panel are senior leaders from two prominent rating agencies as well as leading equity analysts for the P&C industry who will provide their perspective and insight.
