The company

IRB is one of the main reinsurers in Brazil. Founded in 1939, the company enjoys a prominent position in the Brazilian and Latin American reinsurance market. Reinsurance is an activity in which an insurer transfers part of the risk of insurance contracts it has issued to other companies, called reinsurers, in exchange for a fee (premium).

The IRB acts as a kind of “insurer of insurers”, helping to ensure that insurers can cover major risks and protect their clients in the event of serious losses, such as natural disasters or extraordinary events.
