General Re Corporation Key Developments
The General Re Announces Management Changes

Gen Re to Close Offices in Restructure
Mar 11 16
Gen Re is discontinuing three offices in the US: Charlotte in North Carolina, Seattle and St.Paul in Minnesota; one in Europe: Riga; and two in Asia-Pacific: Hong Kong and Melbourne. The restructure comes as the P&C global reinsurance market has become increasingly competitive in the last few years as capital has flooded into the industry. The reinsurer stressed it remains committed to all of these markets and will realign the operations with other offices. Gen Re is also reorganising European treaty underwriting to work along five line-of-business teams.
Gen Re Announces Global Property and Casualty Reorganization
Mar 10 16
Gen Re announced that it will reorganize its Direct Global P&C operations in an effort to position the company’s team for the future. First, the footprint around the globe was evaluated to most effectively serve clients and to access promising business opportunities in the future. As a result of that analysis, six smaller Property & Casualty operations will be integrated into teams in larger locations to facilitate a more robust delivery of services to clients. Therefore, Property & Casualty operations will be discontinued at the following locations: North America Charlotte, Seattle and St. Paul; Europe Riga; and Asia Pacific Hong Kong and Melbourne. Despite these changes, the company remains committed to these markets, servicing clients, and pursuing new opportunities across all regions. Throughout this transition, the company will work closely with its regulators to make certain that transition is appropriately managed, regulations are followed, and obligations to Gen Re’s clients are fully met. Secondly, with the same goals in mind, company's European Treaty underwriting resources will now be organized more centrally along five line-of-business teams to support the entire region. This will allow the company to leverage underwriting expertise more effectively across Europe to support business development, and to provide even greater underwriting resources to customers through the company’s direct reinsurance model.
