Course Description

The lecture provides an overview on insurance companies’ risk management with a specific focus on reinsurance. Here, reinsurance will be derived as an option to mitigate insurance risks. In context of reinsurance, proportional and non-proportional types of reinsurance will be studied accordingly; some typical evaluation approaches, i.e. pricing approaches, will be analyzed for respective types of treaties. Finally, a brief overview on alternative risk transfer instruments such as insurance linked securities (ILS) will be presented.


Reinsurance will be offered in live video sessions in SS2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Links to the sessions will be announced by email to registered participants and in LSF during the semester. See the LSF for details.
