KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • The premium accepted by the Australian reinsurance segment grew at a review-period CAGR of 5.7%.
  • Due to natural disasters such as the Queensland floods and Cyclone Yasi in 2011, premium rates for some classes of reinsurance increased by more than 50%. Insurers had to increase prices to remain solvent.
  • The reinsurance segment is highly competitive, with seven reinsurers providing cover for life insurers and 12 providing cover for non-life insurers.
  • Competition among reinsurers in Australia is based on price, as capital inflows are high and demand for reinsurance is relatively low.
  • The segment is expected to consolidate over the forecast period, as smaller reinsurers are expected to merge with larger reinsurers due to high competition and falling renewal rates.
