Reinsurance — Underwriting strategy

Apart from selling insurance products KLPP is also a reinsurance company and operates in both lines:

1)  outward reinsurance – to protect the portfolio of the company

2) inward reinsurance – providing capacity for other conpanies

In our reinsurance activities we follow these principles:

  • Fulfillment of obligations to our partners in the shortest time.
  • Conservative underwriting strategy.
  • Regular evaluation of the company’s risk portfolio to control overall exposure and to protect the capital.
  • Organisation of a retrocession protection for the company’s portfolio keeping in mind solvency requirements and self-retention limits.

Our goal is to protect the capital of the company not getting involved into high volatile and high risk areas. For this reason, KLPP focuses on selected lines of business with enough statistics and positive experience.
