In part two of Intelligent Insurer’s year in review series, we hear from re/insurance leaders from six industry companies with their thoughts on the impact of 2020 on the industry and what trends we’re likely to see in 2021.

With a historic year to reflect on, Intelligent Insurer asks re/insurance leaders what they think the key developments have been for the industry in the past 12 months. The company leaders also share their expectations for the year ahead in terms of rates and trends, and for their own businesses.

COVID-19 has been the most challenging, and monumental, event for the insurance industry to grapple with this year, says Johan Slabbert, chief executive at MS Amlin Underwriting.

He calls the arrival of the first vaccine “a light at the end of what has been a long tunnel” but adds: “I fully expect the pandemic’s presence will continue to be felt throughout 2021 and beyond.”
