The written premium of the Peruvian reinsurance segment grew in earlier years as a result of Peru's robust economic development and healthy growth in the insurance industry.

As a consequence of happening of the natural disasters, such as the earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 in 2007 and floods in subsequent years, the insurance companies shared a better proportion of revenues with the reinsurance companies to split larger risk for avoiding losses from the unforeseen natural disaster events.


The Peruvian government, in collaboration with regulatory body Superintendencia de Banca y Seguros (SBS), took numerous actions to ameliorate the effectiveness and efficiency of the country's insurance industry which led to non-life  segment accounting for highest premium ceded in 2015, with 41.3% of the non-life segment's total. Arthur J Gallagher and Grupo CP were able to fulfill the acquisition of majority shareholdings in Peruvian reinsurance broker JAO & Partners in 2014.

Peruvian insurers divide the risk with reinsurers in order to circumvent losses due to natural disasters. Under Article 10 of Law, foreign reinsurance companies may write reinsurance business without registering with SBS given that they hold ratings of BBB- by S&P, Baa3 by Fitch, BBB- by Moody's or B+ by AM Best. By year 2020, the market is expected to be well developed and continue to grow.
