Reinsurance market outlook - June and July update 2013

Aon Benfield's 2013 reinsurance market outlook report covering June and July renewals reveals that increasing velocity of new capital flows benefits reinsurance buyers. Driven by very low single digit expected returns in corporate and government bond markets, pension funds, family trusts, endowments and life insurers continued to allocate more funds to insurance-linked securities (ILS) and collateralized reinsurance ahead of the June 1 and July 1 reinsurance renewals.
