As the terrorism threat has evolved, the (re)insurance industry has reacted and adapted. Certainly, the terror reinsurance market has changed significantly since 2001. Activity and pricing levels have generally fallen since the peak that occurred following the attacks of September 11, 2001 due to the absence of a major loss and supply/ demand imbalances. Regional differences exist, however, with activity in the United States clearly down while other markets have remained steady.

A recent Guy Carpenter & Company, LLC survey of reinsurance underwriters improved our understanding of the terrorism reinsurance market. The findings were consistent with our beliefs and offered additional insights that are significant and encouraging. 

The dynamic nature of terrorism requires a different underwriting approach, and Guy Carpenter will continue to offer advice and solutions to help insurers manage their terrorism exposure.
