Using a unique proprietary data set of primary insurers and reinsurers, we analyse the structure of the reinsurance market. The data, which spans six years, contains the quotes for different reinsurance layers, for different clients, for different treaties and for different lines of business. This is the first study that documents the actual structure of the global reinsurance market using actual quotes, not just the winning quote, for a large number of layers and a large number of reinsurance treaties.
