The 24 life reinsurers that Moody’s Investors Services tracks reported collecting $95 billion in life and annuity reinsurance premium revenue in 2018.
That’s up 6.2% from the total for those same company’s in 2017.
The property and casualty reinsurers Moody’s tracks reported $181 billion in P&C reinsurance premium revenue, up 5.3%.
A Moody’s team led by Brendan Holmes prepared the reinsurance table for a global reinsurance market review.
The team did not include premium rankings for the new, alternative capital-backed reinsurers, such as Athene.
Life reinsurance accounted for 34.5% of the reinsurance premiums included in the Moody’s report table for 2018, up from 34.3% in 2017.
