Catastrophe Exposures for Reinsurance Companies (professional)


Traditionally reinsurance companies were required to report their financial risks in the same form as insurers, yet during the 1980's several of these companies went under and their seemed to be no warning based on how they reported to the insurance departments. I designed a new form of reporting for these companies that corrected this situation and my new form was adopted by all insurance departments and by insurance financial rating agencies like A.M. Best.
