Journal of Reinsurance

Now in it's 23rd year of continuous publication the purpose of the Journal of Reinsurance is to encourage an exchange of ideas and to disseminate educational information for the benefit and betterment of the Intermediaries & Reinsurance Underwriters Association membership and the reinsurance community.

The Journal of Reinsurance is an official publication of the Intermediaries & Reinsurance Underwriters Association. It is published three or four times annually as the quality of content is more important than the number of annual editions. Focused on issues confronting the reinsurance community in today's complex environment, the Journal of Reinsurance applies the best research and practices to the strategic challenges and operating problems of today's environment. The Journal of Reinsurance is designed to keep reinsurance and insurance underwriters, insurance company executives, brokers, regulators, academicians and those interested in reinsurance abreast of developments which will impact on reinsurers and the reinsurance market.

Founded in 1993, the Journal was successively edited by Claude C. Lilly III (1993-1996), who is now the President of Presbyterian College in Clinton, S. Carolina, and Ronald G. Mullins (1996-1999).

The Editor from 1999 until Spring 2014 was Paul Walther, CPCU, ARe, CEO and Principal Consultant of Reinsurance Directions, Inc., which provides reinsurance consulting and arbitration services. During his tenure well over 200 individual articles were contributed.

Following his retirement, an Advisory Committee of industry, legal and academic specialists has been assembled to continue the great work of Mr. Walther and his predecessors.
