  • Partnership provides enhanced capacity and product competitiveness to the cedant
  • Marks the development of a capability Resolution Life will scale going forward
  • Extends Resolution Life’s presence in Asia, a core market for future growth

HAMILTON, BERMUDA, – Resolution Life, a leading global manager of in-force life and annuity policies, announces that its Bermudian reinsurance platform, Resolution Re, has entered into a flow reinsurance agreement with a Japanese insurer.

The transaction is the first flow reinsurance arrangement for the cedant and aims to provide increased capacity and greater product competitiveness, enhancing the offering to the cedant’s fixed annuity policyholders.

This is a solution that Resolution Life is well placed to scale further in response to the needs of the primary life insurance industry in both Asia and the U.S.  This is in addition to the company’s current capabilities in block reinsurance and M&A transactions.

As Resolution Life’s second transaction in Japan following a reinsurance agreement with Dai-Ichi Life in 2022, it further extends the business’ commitment to Asia more broadly, which remains a core market for future growth.

As we continue our mission to support the primary life insurance industry globally, we are pleased that this transaction allows Resolution Life to serve a new partner, expand our product offering and deepen our commitment to supporting the Asian life insurance industry. We look forward to building further on these elements in the future.

Rushabh Ranavat CEO, Asia of Resolution Life
