Reinsuring the ECA market

Reinsuring the ECA market The private reinsurance market plays a key role in supporting the public ECA market. This discussion looks at how the two sectors can continue their symbiotic relationship: • How can ECAs utilise the private reinsurance market to generate new capacity? • How can ECAs diversify their portfolio through the use of ECA or private reinsurance?
