Reinsurance Companies in Kenya

What’s the most trusted reinsurance company in Kenya today? Let’s find out in this article.

What are Reinsurance Companies?

Reinsurance companies, also known as reinsurers, are companies that provide insurance to insurance companies.

In other words, reinsurance companies are companies that receive insurance liabilities from insurance companies.

It is important to realize that, similar to any other businesses, insurance companies require protection against risk.

Insurance companies manage their risk through a reinsurance company.

Basically, how it works is that, primary insurer (the insurance company) transfers policies (insurance liabilities) to a reinsurer (the reinsurance company) through a process called cession.

Cession simply refers to the portion of the insurance liabilities transferred to a reinsurer.

This is very similar to the way individuals pay insurance premiums to insurance companies, insurance companies pay insurance premiums to reinsurers for the transfer of insurance liabilities.

In Kenya, there are a number of reinsurance companies that claim to be the best in the Kenyan industry.
