Ariel Re provides superior service by being a quoting market for traditional structures such as catastrophe XL, aggregate XL, per-risk XL, and quota-share arrangements. Also, the company is a quoting market for less-standard placements, such as top and drop, cascading covers, RPPs and multiyear deals. Property treaty is predominantly catastrophe focused and is underwritten on a global basis by the U.S. and International underwriting teams.
When a program meets Ariel Re’s data and pricing requirements, the preference is to allocate material capacity. Ariel Re strongly believes that having a detailed understanding of a relatively small number of accounts, rather than a limited understanding of a large number of accounts, will lead to improved gross account performance. This belief has been proven by the account’s gross loss ratio since inception.
While the average line size per cedent is approximately $15 million, Ariel Re has deployed more than $100 million for core partners.
Ariel has no attachment point preference. Our current portfolio includes low return period coverage and extremely remote excess of loss protection.
