Managing Risk in Reinsurance

Forrest Capie

Oxford University Press

This chapter places the historical strategies of the reinsurance industry in the context of changing monetary, financial, and macroeconomic conditions throughout the world since the nineteenth century, focusing particularly on Swiss Re. The author, Forrest Capie, considers four main time periods, splitting the world economy over the life of the company into four main blocks: that before the First World War; then from 1914 to 1945, the end of the Second World War; next from 1945 to the beginning of the 1980s; and finally the period sometimes called the ‘great moderation’, culminating in the great global financial crisis in 2007/8.

Keywords:   financial crisis, monetary conditions, macroeconomic conditions, great moderation, Swiss Re, world economy
