On occasion an insurer might not be allowed to accept an insurance risk (e.g. it might not be authorised to accept business in that jurisdiction or it might be authorised only to write reinsurance rather than direct insurance). In such event it (or the broker involved) might arrange for an authorised insurer to "front" the business, which is then ceded to the initial company as a reinsurance. The "fronting" insurer is remunerated by way of a fee (which is generally in the form of an over-riding commission on the premium). The practice of providing fronting capacity has one major pitfall which is that the fronting insurer is liable to the insured for the whole of the exposure. This could be a problem in the event that the reinsuring company cannot or will not pay a claim.
A situation where one insurer issues policies and reinsures all or substantially all of the risk to another insurer. Fronting typically is used in jurisdictions where the reinsurer is not licensed to do business.
The practice, in reinsurance, of the ceding company retaining only a small portion of a risk and ceding the remainder to a reinsurer.
Fronting is the leasing of authorized insurance policy forms in individual states. Sponsoring carriers may elect to assume all, part, or none of the risk being assumed. Fronting carriers may, or may not act as reinsurers on the program. A fronting and reinsurance assignment is typically a program of transferring over an existing book ($2+M) of insurance into an existing authorized policy form, thus creating new market for risk. These programs are established to create or grow strong books of business, and to share in underwriting profits. Assumption of risk by the sponsoring agency is usually required to assure a true risk partnership and comfort reinsurers.
The issuance of insurance policies by an insurer as an accommodation to another insurer. Usually, the insurer providing the fronting facility cedes all or substantially all the risk, as well as a significant percentage of the premium, to the insurer being accommodated. This device often is used to enable an insurer to underwrite risks in a jurisdiction in which it is not licensed.
Most commonly refers to the practice of a non-admitted insurer (or an insured with a captive insurance company) contracting with a licensed insurer to issue an insurance policy for regulatory or certification purposes.
An agreement whereby one insurance company issues a policy for a second insurance company in return for a fee. If the definition you're searching for is not listed, please feel free to email us.
A reinsurance arrangement in which a licensed insurer, known as the fronting company, issues a policy on a risk for, and at the request of, one or more other unlicensed insurers with the intent of ceding the entire risk to the other insurer or insurers through reinsurance.
In international insurance, this refers to a locally admitted Insurer ceding the local risk, less any retention - fronting fee - and/or taxes, to its Reinsurer.
An arrangement between two insurance companies to produce an insurance policy (usually workers' compensation) for a third party wherein one insurance company produces the official policy (for a fee) but cedes all losses from that policy to the other insurer. This kind of arrangement is used in situations where the insurer writing the risk is not an admitted company in a particular state, and the coverage needs to be written by an admitted carrier. In order to meet the statutory requirements, the first insurer pays a second (admitted) insurer to "front" the policy, even though the first insurer remains responsible for paying all losses arising under the policy. This kind of arrangement is often used by captive insurers when they are not admitted carriers in a particular state.
A procedure in which a primary insurer acts as the insurer of record by issuing a policy, but then passes the entire risk to a reinsurer in exchange for a commission. Often, the fronting insurer is licensed to do business in a state or country where the risk is located, but the reinsurer is not. The reinsurer in this scenario is often a captive or an independent insurance company that cannot sell insurance directly in a particular country.
