As brokers and insurers take on the increasingly sophisticated challenges in the agricultural industry worldwide—from climate variability to volatile crop prices—they need to rely on the risk management and analytical expertise of global reinsurance partners. 

The AXIS Re Agriculture Reinsurance team is known globally for its expertise and specialist knowledge in developing innovative solutions that focus on addressing the complex issues increasingly faced by agricultural markets. We provide stop loss and quota share reinsurance coverage for multi-peril crop insurance risk portfolios, as well as other related agricultural insurance products on a proportional and non-proportional basis. We develop and rate yield-based, revenue-based and weather-indexed crop insurance products for agricultural regions around the world (U.S., China, India, Canada, Europe and Latin America). 

By taking advantage of our advanced analytics, our underwriting teams gain unique insights into cedents' portfolios, allowing us to take a disciplined approach to risk management and underwriting to help promote stability and reduce volatility throughout the underwriting cycles. And we offer our cedents the confidence of knowing that we are a top-rated, global reinsurer.

Should a claim be reported, AXIS can call on an international network of technical experts and specialized attorneys. We collaborate closely with cedents, brokers and underwriters to bring claims to a successful resolution efficiently and fairly.
