    Hi everyone,

    I’d like to learn more about reinsurance. I realize that the topic is huge, and this request is akin to saying “I’d like to know more about insurance”. I’d like to understand is the different reasons that companies decide to reinsure a block, what sorts of arrangements are there (e.g. FW, coinsurance, ModCo, captives), up/downstream consequences, etc. So less on the actuarial mathematics and more on the business/operational/financial side. Any recommendations? I’ve found a bunch of books out there but I want to be judicious with my time.

    On the property-casualty side, the American Institutes have some non-actuarial reinsurance exams and textbooks.  You can get the textbooks and self-study without taking the exams.  You can get used textbooks pretty cheaply on Amazon or elsewhere.

    For Life side, the book “Life, Health & Annuity Reinsurance” is worth reading. Also can be found on Amazon. Or you can take a look at LOMA’s reinsurance textbook.

    Excellent, thank you both for your help! I’m sure these will give me a good start.
