Reflecting on the 1/1/24 Renewals

Reflecting on the 1/1 renewals, we saw our facultative book have modest price changes at Jan 1st renewals. Price increases in the renewals broadly followed claims inflation patterns, amounting to rises of between 5%–10% in most lines of business. Those accounts affected by the geopolitical conflicts in Russia and Ukraine; and Gaza, attracted the most attention and were the most complex to handle.

Despite the losses, we managed to renew our 1/1 PVT book.

On treaties, the January 1 market reflected more balanced trading conditions as they provided cedants with improved opportunities to achieve their objectives while maintaining key reinsurer relationships. Technical discussions were essential to reinsurers’ increasing appetite and capacity allocations.

“Maksure noticed an increase on reinsurers’ capacity and we are happy to advise that we renewed all our 1/1 treaties. Additionally, we found capacity for our new clients”, comments Malven Chibaya.
