Since 1957, senior executives from global reinsurers have met at the Rendez-Vous de Septembre in Monte Carlo. As the conference looms, Intelligent Insurer catches up with seasoned attendees to find out how the event has evolved and whether it will remain important in years to come.
Founded in 1957 by André Roux, then president of the Assurances Générales de France, together with some other members of the industry, the Rendez-Vous de Septembre (RVS) was formed with the intention of its becoming a universal meeting point for the reinsurance market.
It continues to represent a pivotal point in the calendar for the industry. And, as more than 2,600 re/insurance industry professionals, including lawyers, journalists and bankers, among others, from 80 countries prepare to head to Monaco, today’s RVS is somewhat different from that experienced by the event’s attendees in years gone by.
