(Re)insurance companies segment their obligations into homogeneous risk groups when calculating technical provisions. CEIOPS recommends a minimum level of segmentation for technical provisions and will continue developing its advice on segmentation, particularly with regard to health insurance.

The recommendations differ between life and non-life and insurance and reinsurance.

Non-life insurance and proportional reinsurance:

Non-life, non-proportional treaty and facultative reinsurance:

  • Property
  • Casualty
  • Marine, aviation and transport

Life insurance and reinsurance:

  • Contracts with profit participation
  • Contracts where the policyholder bears the investment risk
  • Other contracts without profit participation
  • Accepted reinsurance

For life insurance and reinsurance, each category can be split further into:

  • Contracts where the main risk driver is death
  • Contracts where the main risk driver is survival
  • Contracts where the main risk driver is disability/morbidity
  • Savings contracts
