Good article about a major threat to the profitability of the reinsurance industry:

I wonder how much the recent moves by Berkshire and Lancashire are related to these trends. It will also be interesting to watch how Markels entry to the reinsurance field works out.

 

 

AIG is reducing the purchase of reinsurance and instead taking those risks themselves.

If HF move into the reinsurance business, then it will be good to drive prices down, so I think AIG should move back to purchase those cheap reinsurance contracts, supposes these HF guys don't blow up. :)
