Life & Health


We offer the full range of reassurance solutions across the life & disability, health & long-term care, and unemployment spectrum. Whether for credit/mortgage life, income and family protection or group/key man business, we have something different and something more to offer.

Traditional reinsurance

We are amongst the leaders in the French market for Life and Health reinsurance, through proportional or non-proportional reinsurances. This encompasses per Life protections as well as catastrophe and pandemics protection.

Structured transactions

We provide tailored reinsurance solutions enabling insurers to improve their solvency ratios. This encompasses annual or multi-years quota share or stop-loss reinsurances on all types of risks such as death & disability, health, longevity, or savings.

Similarly, structured transactions can be offered to companies in transition.

Financing deals

We structure financing reinsurance solutions on a cash or non-cash basis. These solutions can provide relief to insurers in the financing of acquisition costs. Such deals can also be designed to unfreeze a portfolio value (VIF/Back Book Deals).
