Learn how your organization can benefit from property reinsurance. 

Why is Property Reinsurance Important?

Global natural disaster economic losses reached $380 billion in 2023, with insurers facing the fourth year in a row of insured losses over $100 billion. These losses are exacerbated by rising inflation, climate change, costly claims and property exposures, representing a significant capital constraint for many re/insurers. As cautious reinsurers and insurance-linked securities, investors reduce the capacity for property, identifying new sources of capital and protecting existing capital through optimal reinsurance is critical.

How Aon Can Help

At Aon, we place approximately $30 billion of global property reinsurance premiums; through this, we have built a vast hazard and market database that includes early trends and insights on how insurers compare to industry peers. With our extensive investment in data and analytics capabilities, we help clients make better decisions to protect and optimize their capital.
