The company’s core products include property catastrophe reinsurance, which it primarily writes through its principal operating subsidiary, Renaissance Reinsurance Ltd. (Renaissance Reinsurance), RenaissanceRe Syndicate 1458 (Syndicate 1458), and joint ventures, principally DaVinci Reinsurance Ltd. (DaVinci), Top Layer Reinsurance Ltd.

(RenaissanceRe Specialty U.S.), Syndicate 1458, and DaVinci; and certain insurance products primarily written through Syndicate 1458 or on an excess and surplus lines basis. The company’s reinsurance and insurance products are principally distributed through intermediaries. Segments The company’s business consists of three segments: Catastrophe Reinsurance, which includes catastrophe reinsurance and certain property catastrophe joint ventures managed by the company’s ventures unit; Specialty Reinsurance, which includes specialty reinsurance and certain specialty joint ventures managed by the company’s ventures unit; and Lloyd’s, which includes reinsurance and insurance business written through Syndicate 1458. In addition, the company’s Other category primarily reflects its strategic investments; investments unit; corporate expenses; capital servicing costs; noncontrolling interests; results of the company’s discontinued operations; and the remnants of the company’s Bermuda-based insurance operations. Catastrophe Reinsurance segment Property catastrophe reinsurance is this segment’s traditional core business, and is principally written for the company’s own account, for DaVinci and for other joint ventures, such as Top Layer Re and Upsilon RFO. The company provides this coverage based on total catastrophe gross premiums written. This coverage protects against large natural catastrophes, such as earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis, as well as claims arising from other natural and man-made catastrophes, such as winter storms, freezes, floods, fires, wind storms, tornadoes, explosions and acts of terrorism. The company offers this coverage to insurance companies and other reinsurers primarily on an excess of loss basis. The company also offers proportional coverages and other structures on a catastrophe-exposed basis and might increase these offerings on an absolute or relative basis in the future. The company’s excess of loss property catastrophe reinsurance contracts generally cover all natural perils. The company’s exposure is to losses from earthquakes and hurricanes and other windstorms, although the company is also exposed to claims arising from other catastrophes, such as tsunamis, freezes, floods, fires, tornadoes, explosions and acts of terrorism in connection with the coverages that the company provides. The company’s exposure under such coverage is to property damage. However, other risks, including business interruption and other non-property losses, might also be covered under the company’s property reinsurance contracts when arising from a covered peril. The company offers its coverages on a worldwide basis. The company’s principal property catastrophe reinsurance products include catastrophe excess of loss reinsurance and excess of loss retrocessional reinsurance as follows: Catastrophe Excess of Loss Reinsurance The company principally writes catastrophe reinsurance on an excess of loss basis, which means the company provides coverage to its insureds when aggregate claims and claim expenses from a single occurrence of a covered peril exceed the attachment point specified in a particular contract. Under these contracts, the company indemnifies an insurer for all or a specified portion of the losses on underlying insurance policies in excess of a specified amount, and up to an amount per loss specified in the contract. The coverage provided under excess of loss reinsurance contracts might be on a worldwide basis or limited in scope t
