Mega-Trends in the World of Insurance: Impacts on Captive & Alternative Risk Transfer Markets

This PowerPoint report, presented by Robert Hartwig, president of the Insurance Information Institute at the 17th Annual World Captive Forum in Scottsdale, Arizona, provides a comprehensive overview of the factors impacting interest in the use of alternative risk transfer (ART) mechanisms, with a focus on captives.  Today ARTs cover about 30 percent ($98 billion) of the total commercial risk protection market ($326.9 billion). While there were mixed growth rates in captive domiciles worldwide as competition intensified in the traditional market, U.S. domiciles experienced dramatic growth in 2006.  Soft pricing, increasing capacity and better quality underwriting suggest traditional insurers will look to recapture some of what has been lost to the alternative market.  Looking ahead, major challenges for the markets include confronting a slow growth environment, maintaining price and underwriting discipline, deciding how and where to deploy or redeploy capital and managing variability and the volatility of results.

The following presentation is called "Mega-Trends in the World of Insurance: Impacts on Captive & Alternative Risk Transfer Markets". It was presented by Dr. Robert P. Hartwig on November 6, 2007.
