Reinsurance is the practice of insurance companies transferring a portion of their risk to other insurance companies or reinsurers in order to spread and mitigate the impact of potential losses. Reinsurance allows insurers to manage and reduce their risk exposure by transferring a portion of their policy liabilities to reinsurers, in exchange for a percentage of the premium. The reinsurance market is a global market that provides a way for insurers to manage and mitigate the risks associated with providing insurance coverage. The market is composed of both primary insurers (companies that sell insurance policies to customers) and reinsurers (companies that take on a portion of the risk assumed by primary insurers in exchange for a percentage of the premium).
