Executives are talking of a market with clear signs of hardening, but there is a notable reluctance to fully call this a ‘hard’ market as traditionally defined.

Executives are talking of a market with clear signs of hardening, but there is a notable reluctance to fully call this a “hard” market as traditionally defined, despite the economic disruption and a spate of hefty claims in the last year.

In a panel chaired by Tom Anderson, director of sales US at Advantage Go, at the Re/insurance Lounge, Intelligent Insurer’s online, on-demand platform for interviews and panel discussions with industry leaders, David Govrin, SiriusPoint’s global chief underwriting and president of Americas reinsurance, and James Few, chief executive officer UK and international at TigerRisk Partners, discussed how reinsurance pricing after the pandemic is taking a different direction from that of the primary markets.
