Specialty/Whole Account

AXA XL Reinsurance’s Specialty team is taking on not only traditional business but the frontiers of new emerging risk and capital efficiency.

Our combined talent brings a proven track record of building long term relationships across five core businesses:

– Lloyd’s Trade Capital
We’ve been a pioneer in third-party capital for over 15 years offering a wide variety of innovative products include Quota Share and Excess of Loss, in addition to “gearing” products that allow both small and large retail investors to leverage quality underwriting. With a skilled and experienced team, backed with significant capacity, we’re a strong partner.

– Structured Risk
The AXA Structured Risk team is capable of offering solutions across multiple lines. We have the knowledge and experience to execute efficient composite class solutions for our customers, especially where buyers seek to stabilize returns in the event abnormal occurrence in the frequency &/or severity of events (Cat and non-Cat).
We can also help clients address Solvency II and other capital relief demands.

– Specialty Monoline
Serving clients in nearly every global market with Quota Share and Excess of Loss coverage, our focus is on monoline Property Highly-Protected Risk (HPR), Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) Binder business, Downstream Energy, Nuclear, Terror and Accident & Health (A&H). Working closely with third-party experts, we’re also equipped to address Cyber, Intangible Assets and similar highly specialized emerging risks.

– Mortgage Credit
Since the credit crisis of 2008-09, our team has carefully analyzed the fundamental changes that occurred in the Mortgage Credit markets. Guided by that analysis, we’re looking for opportunities where we can deploy capital, including Mortgage Credit. Australia and the US have been of primary interest, but we will consider other markets where we can satisfy our perquisites for underlying Mortgage Credit characteristics, vintages and contract structures.

– Marine Composite
With our knowledge of and current participation in many of the underlying classes, our team is ideally positioned to increase our support of clients with this product. Our capacity is significant, which—combined with our territorial reach and distributor/client relationships—gives us a distinct competitive advantage and makes us an ideal go-to market.
