An Introduction to Reinsurance


This book is the result of two factors, the first being the FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE Institute of Insurance Sciences’ need for a basic text to be used for training on such a little-known subject as reinsurance. The second being MAPFRE Re’s interest in incorporating into one single book the work of several people over many years who have accepted the challenge of taking on training as a goal for their professional and personal growth. We have preferred not to describe this book as a manual. It is a realistic and practical introduction to the profession for anyone new to the sector, containing clear definitions, formulae and appropriate examples which, undoubtedly, make it easier to read and, more importantly, easier to understand.
