What are Reinsurance and Retrocession?
Reinsurance is insurance purchased by an insurance company (the ‘ceding company’ or ‘cedant’) to cover all or part of certain risks on insurance policies issued by that company.  In other words, reinsurance is the transfer of insurance risk to another insurer for a price.  The reinsurer agrees to provide coverage for all or part of the losses that the ceding company may incur under certain policies of insurance issued by the ceding company.

Through reinsurance, risks can be redistributed among several reinsurance companies.  A reinsurer often cedes risks to another reinsurer in a transaction known as retrocession.  Retrocession is essentially insurance for reinsurance companies.  The company that reinsures risks, ceded by a reinsurance company through retrocession, is known as a retrocessionaire.  Retrocession increases the capacity available in the reinsurance market, and therefore increases the capacity available to insurers and the insurance market in general.  A large dispersion of risk also creates diversification that ultimately reduces the overall cost of risk.

Insurance, reinsurance and retrocession protections involve the transfer of insurance risk at a certain price. The process of determining the underlying risks and the corresponding price for the transfer of such risk is called underwriting.
