Reinsurance Services

At Berkley, our reinsurance consultants understand that for an Insurer to underwrite risk profitably, they will always need reinsurance to preserve or enhance their capital strength and ratings.

Our role is to find structures which optimise the client reinsurance purchase, providing them with total clarity on the risk vs reward benefits. Berkley Risk is registered with the financial services regulator in South Africa and is in the process of registering offices in Lesotho and Mauritius offering a regional service to our multi-national client base. Berkley Risk also utilises the skills of independent actuaries and risk consultants to model and anticipate risk on a portfolio basis.

With relationships in both local and international rated markets, including Lloyds, Berkley Risk is well equipped to place Treaty and Facultative reinsurance on both a proportional and non-proportional basis which includes Natural Catastrophe covers.

Whilst primarily focussing on property, motor and commercial facultative and treaty placements, we also have access to expertise in the following niche areas:

  • Bonds and Guarantees
  • Political Violence and Terrorism
  • Agricultural Growing & Specialist Crops
