Our focus is on helping our clients optimize their reinsurance arrangement through solutions which provide for enhanced risk transfer without increased costs. We put our financial strength, sophisticated risk assessment, and disciplined risk-management framework behind our clients to support their risk, expand their product range and enable them to access new business – all the while fulfilling our principal promise: the certainty of claims payment.

The size and structure of PartnerRe Life give us the flexibility to hone in on the right solutions to meet our clients’ needs as well as speed and transparency of decision-making. Our multi-lingual teams consist of professionals with long-standing experience in the pricing and risk assessment of life business for worldwide markets across a broad offering.

We invite you to discover our lead capabilities:

Group Reinsurance – Our group risk proposition is focused on helping our clients profitably grow their own group portfolios across their respective markets.  In addition to supporting employee benefits and credit-life related business (primarily death, TPD, disability and critical illness, as well as ancillary risks) on a treaty or facultative basis, we offer our clients a customized pricing tool, analytics, scheme underwriting support and the expertise to underwrite high-risk groups.

Longevity – We have proven experience in writing longevity risk in reinsurance, index and capital market formats. As pioneers of new solutions that helped build today’s longevity market, we continue to invest in new ideas, bringing value to our clients through innovation and quick delivery.  

Capital / Financing - By leveraging our expertise and access to capital, we offer our clients financing reinsurance structures as an alternative to raising capital. These economically attractive solutions are typically geared to cover the cost of acquiring new policies or to the accelerated realization of the value tied up in existing portfolios.

Non-proportional Reinsurance - Often more effective in smoothing earnings volatility, non-proportional reinsurance delivers better value than traditional proportional programs.  We help our clients analyze their existing portfolios and reinsurance solutions in order to pinpoint their underlying risk-return profiles. These unique profiles serve as the basis for developing customized reinsurance programs that seamlessly fit the risk appetites of our clients.

Mortality / Morbidity - Supporting mortality, disability, critical illness and long-term care insurance (LTC) products end-to-end is at the heart of our business. We help our clients deliver a compelling proposition within their own highly dynamic, markets.
