We have pleasure in presenting and commenting on the financial results of the South African reinsurance industry for the 2016 financial year.
We will highlight some key aspects, ratios and events that impacted the industry as well as cast our eye toward the future and report on what we expect the next couple of years may hold in for the industry.

It goes without saying that the political, social and economic environment influences the insurance customer and consequently the reinsurer.
