The data for this global study of the non-life reinsurance sector is unique. It is based on ethnographic observation of reinsurance trading, broking, client meetings and conferences, as well as in-depth interviewing of key participants in the reinsurance industry over three annual cycles from 2009-2012. The data set comprises 837 ethnographic observations and 446 interviews, collected in 22 reinsurance and broking firms and 36 insurance firms across 17 countries and 61 offices in all non-life lines of business. We thank the industry for the generosity and transparency that has made the analysis in this report possible.
