An increasing number of insurers who manage legacy business are opting to outsource their reinsurance recoverables, freeing them to focus on their core business and activities.
Considering the complexities and specificities of the London Market, managing reinsurance recoveries in a timely manner can often represent somewhat of a headache for cedants. As such, turning to a third party to provide support is becoming increasingly popular.

Rudolf Kellenberger, president of the board of the SPL, says the pool being placed into run-off meant a shift in focus for the organisation, from active underwriting to managing a complex discontinued legacy portfolio.
