About Gen Re

Gen Re delivers reinsurance solutions to the Life/Health and Property/Casualty insurance industries. The company works closely with its clients to understand their strategic and operational goals, and offers a wide range of products, tools and resources that aim to promote its clients’ ongoing growth and success. As a direct reinsurer, the company is in the risk assumption business, just like its clients–a shared perspective that it claims helps it to understand and evaluate even the toughest risks and propose the right solution for them.

Gen Re is a member of the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies, and has earned superior financial strength ratings from each of the major rating agencies. That is further backed up with $14 billion in capital and $6 billion in premiums.
