Below you can read exactly what a reinsurer does. And what you can find in the register. Finally, we will explain how you can search the register.
An insurer or pension fund can ask a reinsurer to insure part of the risk the insurer or pension fund has taken on, for example, for damage or death. A reinsurer does not provide services to consumers or other companies, but only to insurers and pension funds.
Reinsurers wishing to operate in the Netherlands must have a licence from DNB. The register lists all the reinsurers with a licence.
Before entering a name, you may wish to select a financial service from the “Financial service” dropdown list. Then enter a name or part thereof in the “Statutory name / trade name” search field and click on Search. If you are unsure about the correct spelling of a firm’s name, use an asterisk (*) for part of the name. If you leave the search field empty, your search will produce the full list. If you then click on a search result, you will see the details for that firm.
We update the register every business day at 06:00.
