what is reinsurance?

Reinsurance puts your dealership in the driver’s seat to a better, more profitable business. It gives you the ability to do what is best for your customers, and provide a world-class service while having greater control over the financial aspects.

With dealer reinsurance, you retain premium reserves in an account you own. This gives you greater latitude on how claims are handled, resulting in better efficiency and more satisfied customers. Underwriting profitability and return on investment increase substantially on the Finance and Insurance (F&I) products sold, as well as grow your investment income potential in a tax efficient manner.

Understanding Different Kinds of Reinsurance

The two basic methods of reinsurance are facultative and treaty. Facultative reinsurance generally targets a specific risk factor while treaty reinsurance tends to cover all or a portion of an insurer’s risks and is effective for a certain time period. In the automotive industry, treaty reinsurance is most prominent.
