What do you guys know ab out Life reinsurance and how it differs from working for a direct insurer? I have an interview at a reinsurer coming up and I am curious as to how it differs from regular life work. Does it pay more? I’ve heard the work can be a little more similar to consulting.
is the job in underwriting? reserving? modeling? asset stuff? cat modeling?
What kind of reinsurance? capital motivated stuff? longevity risk? individual excess? cat?
i am sure i left out some questions. i am sure there are roles and topics that would excite you. if offered one of those at agreeable terms, take it.
If you help direct insurers design and develop a direct insurance product and reinsure it, the difference may be small. But sometimes it’s completely a different job when you design a life reinsurance cover for a direct insurer, like co, mod-co, etc.
