International and health / personal protection inwards reinsurance
Our international reinsurance business was launched in Strasbourg in 1954, where it is still carried out by a team of 32 employees.
In 2015, Covéa created a Health and Personal Protection Reinsurance Division to support the health mutual companies and provident institutions in France. This new activity within the mutualist group reflects the desire to provide responses to social economy organisations that wish to cede health and personal protection risk and benefit from risk control solutions.
Since 1 January 2017, the international and health and personal protection inwards reinsurance activities have been backed by one of the Group’s entities, Covéa Coopérations.
With financial strength that meets the requirements of ceding companies, Covéa Coopérations is rated A+ by Standard & Poor’s and A by AM Best.
