The company provides a wide range of niche and specialty reinsurance products to property and casualty insurers. The expertise of our specialty underwriting teams and their knowledge of our markets and products enables us to offer innovative solutions to our clients.
Barents Re does not participate in every type of business because underwriting discipline is fundamental to its success. On the commercial side, Barents Re is especially strong in Bonds, Energy, Construction & Engineering, Financial Lines, Life and Accident & Health, Marine Cargo and Property. Barents Re is also a growing presence in the Consumer arena with participation in a number of Affinity programs.
Barents Re is committed to providing the highest level of service to its clients and brokers, which it believes is critical to its ability to build and maintain long-term relationships and ensure its continued success.
Our vision is for Barents Re to become more widely recognised as an integral part of the insurance value chain.
