Victoria Carter, Vice Chairman of International Operations, Guy Carpenter, discusses how current market conditions are influencing reinsurance buying strategies in this GC Capital Ideas videocast. ”The reinsurance buying decision is moving higher up the chain of command, often to the C-Suite floor. Here the reinsurance debate is as much about capital optimization as it is about protection. Indeed, reinsurance is seeing an enhanced and more sophisticated role as a form of substitute capital and this is providing opportunities to soak up some of the recent flood of new capacity.”
