The article focuses on the significance of Solvency II to large reinsurers in capital markets. It expects that reinsurers, specifically the large and highly rated firms, tend to benefit from this regime. It notes that reinsurance demand should originate from undiversified insurers and mutuals without easy access to capital from reinsurance's use as a risk mitigation tool. However, the ability of the U.S. reinsurers to participate is still unclear due to the European Union (EU) requirements.
