报告题目:Pure Risk Management, Unconventional Transfer and ILSs, the role of Financial Reinsurance
报告人：Maurizio Pompella( University of Siena)
As “insurer of last resort, the reinsurer is intended to absorb the worst outcome of the heaviest risks, those that insurance companies leave or forward on to them for being outside their insurance capacity. Historically, the estimates made by the reinsurance sector – either because they are based on poor technical bases, or because they refer to new risks (difficult to fit in the panorama of traditional risks covered) – are potentially unreliable, at least if you look at the relative frequency with which losses occur. An occasional concentration, even minimal, of extreme events is able to undermine the entire sector. Pure risk securitization, together with the financialisation of insurance products coming with it, are elements of financial innovation that are derived from this periodical lack in reinsurance industry capacity.
