With Asia being the one region in the world with the most growth opportunities, reinsurers and RI brokers have a collective duty to do more, not less, to nurture the potential of the region. Using innovative digital technology, be it for new products, better processes or more effective distribution is the order of the day. These were the clear messages from Asia Insurance Review’s annual reinsurance roundtable to take the pulse of reinsurance in Asia this year. The Roundtable of nine – five brokers and four reinsurers – was upbeat about taking the industry forward with an emphasis on relationships and partnerships rather than just transactions, with a view to closing the penetration gap and facilitating a digital-led transformation. There was also an emphasis on cost drivers and cost control, as well as using the very precepts of reinsurance, being the free flow of ideas and capital, to forge a better tomorrow for clients.
