That would either be the amount of reserve the reinsurer is holding on ceded business; or, more likely, that part of your block of business' total reserve which is allocable to the reinsured portion (that is, how much of your reserve you are ceding away). These two things might not be the same, since the reinsurer could be holding lower reserves on the business than the ceding company would.

Thanks urysohn.
Reserve in insurance companies is to ensure solvency. Is reinsurance reserve's purpose also same as liability reserve (in insurance companies)?

uryson: it also depends on the risk being reinsured...for example, on UL when you are only reinsuring mortality risk, the reinsurance reserve credit is generally 1/2 cx on the NAAR, not a pro rata portion of the total reserve that the ceding co is holding

I think you mean financial reinsurance. On the life side it is reinsurance set up for a reason other than risk transfer such as surplus strain relief. Tiller and Fageberg have an introductory text book "Life, Health, and Annuity Reinsurance". It's ok but it's the only one I know of.

[pedantry] Surplus strain relief effectively results in transfer of persistency risk. [/pedantry]
