Synopsis
The Danish reinsurance segment is small, and insurers operating in the country cede a low percentage of their premium to reinsurers. Natural disasters such as floods and storms increased insurers’ dependence on reinsurers during the review period (2009–2013), and the reinsurance written premium stood at DKK0.7 billion (US$0.1 billion) in 2013. The segment’s growth was driven by the robust performance of direct insurers, and exposure to natural disaster-related risk, encouraging some insurers to cede a higher proportion of their premium with reinsurers. However, facultative reinsurance was discontinued in 2013, with only treaty reinsurance available for insurers operating in Denmark.

The Danish personal accident and health insurance segment ceded the highest percentage of its written premium to reinsurance in 2013 with 25.2%, while the non-life segment ceded 25.1% and the life segment ceded 5.6%.
The implementation of Solvency II in January 2016 will also make smaller insurers more dependent on reinsurers in order to meet new minimum capital requirements.
