A reinsurance agreement is a legal contract between an insurance company and a reinsurance company that transfers the risk from the insurance company to the reinsurance company, either partly or fully. This transfer of risk takes place through a reinsurance agreement.
A reinsurance agreement can be between two parties or multiple parties. Generally, an insurance company will transfer its risk to multiple reinsurance companies, thereby participating in multiple reinsurance contracts. This, however, is subjective and depends on how large the insurance company is, and the magnitude of its assets.
It is also important to know that a reinsurance agreement is governed by the agreements and contract acts of each country. For instance, if there is a reinsurance agreement between an Indian insurance company and a reinsurance company, the reinsurance agreement will come under the Indian Contract Act, 1872.
Parties to a contract need to study the contents of this act and accordingly enter into a reinsurance agreement. Further, the agreement may also come under other acts of law apart from the Contract Act, and legal counsel should be sought before entering into an agreement.
