Arig writes a broad spectrum of reinsurance products to make up a highly diversified portfolio. The Company takes a prominent position on pro rata Treaty reinsurance, selected Excess of Loss covers as well as Facultative risks that match our risk appetite.

In addition, Arig is a leader on regional Life and Medical accounts and on Motor Extended Warranty treaties administered through its subsidiary, Gulf Warranties.

Treaty

Arig provides Treaty reinsurance to its clients with emphasis on continuity and shared economics. Our willingness to provide flexible and comprehensive support to our clients has resulted in a degree of customer loyalty that well exceeds the industry norms.

Arig offers Proportional and Non-proportional Treaty reinsurance for both Life and Non-life clients, as leader or by way of supporting existing treaty programs.

Life

Awareness and demand for Life cover and related benefits are increasing rapidly throughout the region. In response, Arig is able to offer a dedicated reinsurance platform backed by a team with international experience. Depth of service and training are essential to our clients, who have a keen interest in seeing their Personal Lines business expand.

Arig assumed a strategic position to develop in this area and as a result, Life reinsurance has grown to become a significant part of our overall portfolio. Product lines supported include Group and Individual Life, Personal Accident and Critical Illness benefits, as well as Credit Life schemes.

Medical

Market conditions in the conventional group scheme market are recognized to be very challenging and Arig writes medical reinsurance of this nature on a selective basis only.

Arig believes that there are sound alternative opportunities in the Medical Expenses insurance market by means of developing more targeted products for individuals and for affinity groups. We have extensive experience in product design and pricing and are able to apply this to enable our clients to explore this sector of the market.

This approach, along with close control over claims management, is a feature, which allows the insurer to participate in the medical expenses market whilst avoiding the volatility that is often associated with it.
