Ceded reinsurance transfers risk to manage corporate retention limits, reduce claim volatility, allow for efficient allocation of capital, access underwriting and mortality expertise, and allows new partnerships to assist in our new product rollouts. Administrative requirements vary for the various lines of business including Life, Annuity, Disability, Accident & Health, and Major Medical, for policies issued from all Equitable entities.
