Reinsurance credit risk analyst
If is the leading property & casualty insurer in the Nordic region, driven by a strong business culture with focus on financial stability and constant improvement. The Reinsurance unit is responsible for planning and enforcing the reinsurance protections of the If P&C group. We have business relationships and trade with major reinsurance companies in the world.
Reinsurance in If is twofold: First, If buys reinsurance to protect the group balance sheet and reduce volatility in the group UW result. Second, reinsurance is also actively used as a mechanism of sharing risk especially in large corporate risk solutions (Business Area Industrial).
When ceding away (reinsuring away) insurance risk it is essential that the counterparty credit risk that emerges is monitored and mitigated.

This involves e.g. monitoring the financial strength and performance of the reinsurance companies, in close co-operation with the treaty managers who purchase the reinsurance covers as well as with our reinsurance brokers.
The Reinsurance credit risk analyst will be a member of the Corporate Reinsurance Unit and also actively support the Risk Shared Solutions Competence Center and International Network within BA Industrial.
