Voice 85

Voice is ICMIF’s quarterly magazine, containing stories and news embracing the sector as well as in-depth interviews with chief executives.

Highlights in this edition include:

“Cooperatives and mutuals always have to make sure that their reinsurance buying is cost efficient. This can be achieved in respect of the structure of their reinsurance programme, its pricing, the terms and conditions and last but not least the reinsurance administration. But the highest inefficiency is when you have bought your reinsurance with a reinsurer which is no longer around. Given the low margin environment of the current reinsurance market and the low interest level of the capital markets, I anticipate either more mergers and acquisitions among reinsurers or more run-offs,” Lamby says.
