No rose-tinted glasses
While alternative capital is here to stay, the industry could well experience a significant reset in rates if cracks in reserves widen and this combines with a big catastrophe loss, says Weston Hicks, the president of Alleghany, who also explains to Intelligent Insurer why his business is ready to benefit from such a scenario.
 
Rising stars: The Millennials are coming
As the re/insurance industry changes and evolves, it is becoming more attractive to young people—and they look increasingly essential to its future. As part of a wider feature available online, Intelligent Insurer speaks to young executives—all 35 and under—who are making waves in the industry.
 
Securing re/insurance talent for the future
Re/insurance roles are changing and the industry will require a more diverse and tech-savvy set of skills and new talent to tackle the challenges of this evolving landscape, but a shortage of candidates has raised concerns around how to fill the approaching gap. Intelligent Insurer investigates.
 
Artificial intelligence: a game-changer for risk transfer
Amid concerns that AI could result in job losses across the industry, re/insurers speaking at an Intelligent Insurer roundtable in London aimed to suppress some of those fears by highlighting the value of AI with tried and tested examples.
 
Adapt and compete
Amid a myriad of challenges, re/insurers must stay ahead of their peers and embrace innovation and technology if they are to thrive in the game, Ingrid Carlou, the chief executive of Patria Re, tells Intelligent Insurer.
