Reinsurance Solutions: MGA / Program Facilities

Managing General Agents / Program Facilities

The MGA sector is one of the most dynamic segments of the U.S. and International property & casualty market. The continued expansion of start-up and incumbent MGAs is fueled by an ability to attract both significant investment and talented individuals, driven by the industry’s recognition of MGAs importance in allowing controlled and focused distribution of insurance solutions.

Well capitalized (re)insurers recognize that MGAs are a source of new business they may struggle to obtain through their existing channels. Private equity firms also see the MGA model as an efficient route into the (re)insurance market.

However, insurers, reinsurers, PE players – and MGAs themselves – all need to tread carefully before partnering up.
