Our reinsurance trust services help you meet regulatory requirements.

In structures where a producer-owned reinsurance company reinsures an insurance policy in connection with extended warranties, a reinsurer may be required by state insurance statutes and regulations to hold adequate cash and collateral in a reinsurance trust agreement. Delaware Trust Company("Delaware Trust") is a licensed trust company and has helped over 500 reinsurance companies form trusts to comply with regulatory requirements. 

What are reinsurance trusts?

A reinsurance trust is a segregated trust account to report asset transactions to the primary/ceding insurer and reinsurer. Some benefits of reinsurance trusts are:

  • Establish a segregated trust account to report asset transactions to the primary/ceding insurer and reinsurer
  • Often cost less than letters of credit while still funding the requirements of state regulators
  • Do not require annual renewal, as with letters of credit

Delaware Trust can provide:

  • Trustee and custodial services for your reinsurance trust agreements
  • Customizable solutions for your reinsurance program
  • Regular monitoring of key provisions in your trust agreement for compliance
  • Quick turnaround on trust distributions
  • National Association of Insurance Commissioners approved money market funds with same-day liquidity
  • Open investment architecture, allowing for structured investment portfolios managed by any investment advisor
  • Competitive fees (based upon a small percentage of value of assets held in trust)
