EWI’s 2012 Outlook for Insurance, Reinsurance and Financial Markets

-Authored by Steve McElhiney, President of EWI

EWI ended 2010 by posting a blog of its outlook for the reinsurance market in 2011. EWI was accurate in most of its predictions for the 2011 year. As for our 2012 forecast? In our view, the insurance risk markets and the capital markets (and macro economics) are highly inter-connected; thus, our forecasts are provided across a variety of fronts. We believe you simply can’t arrive at credible views of the reinsurance markets without first looking at these other factors. Please click “Outlook 2012″ for our 2012 forecast. Best wishes for the New Year!
