Barents Re does not participate in every type of business because underwriting discipline is fundamental to its success.

Barents Re seeks to create value for shareholders by generating an underwriting profit. To achieve this, the company allocates capital in line with risk exposure and potential underwriting returns.
This is crucial to maintaining its strong financial position and supporting its business expansion. Barents Re’s investment strategy is focused on high grade bonds tailored to underlying insurance liabilities, with an allocation to alternative investments.
