How Inflation Impacts Reinsurance
The key economic theme which has dominated virtually all of the economic discourse in 2022 has been inflation. Countries around the world have seen inflation rise to record levels. Countries like the United States have taken stringent measures to combat inflation.
A record number of interest rate hikes have been undertaken by the American central bank in order to slow down inflation. However, it seems like the efforts are not bearing fruit. Even after the rate hikes, inflation continues to remain persistently high and is impacting almost every sector of the economy. As a result, most economic pundits in the world believe that we are going to live in an era of persistently high inflation for a while.
The reinsurance sector is not immune to inflation either. The reinsurance industry has witnessed a severe impact due to inflation.
In this article, we will have a look at the various ways in which inflation is impacting the reinsurance sector.
