About Us

Our Vision

To create a viable secondary market in the Caribbean for domestic generated risks utilizing internationally rated security and network providers.

The Caribbean needs to develop a secondary market i.e. an insurance market where insurers and brokers (primary market) can seek terms and conditions from industry experts who are familiar with local risks, markets and culture. This is the outlook offered by Worldwide Reinsurance Limited.

Our Mission

Worldwide Reinsurance Limited mission is to support indigenous Insurance Companies and Retail Brokers in the Caribbean attain coinsurance and reinsurance capacity for domestic risk placements.
Many risks in the Caribbean are either too large or too small for Insurance Companies to place overseas economically in excess of its treaty limits. In many cases, the risks may not qualify in quality or premium amount to gain acceptance on the International Market. Worldwide Reinsurance Limited sees its role as bridging this gap in the Regional Market whilst providing Class ‘A’ rated reinsurers.
