What is an entity for risk acceptance?
An entity for risk acceptance meets the following description:
- It is not an insurer
- It accepts insured risks transferred from an insurer
- It finances these insured risks exclusively by raising moneys raised from third parties
- Its repayment obligations in respect of the moneys raised from third parties are subordinate to the payment obligations ensuing from the accepted insured risks.
If you are unsure, given your planned activities, whether your business is an entity for risk acceptance, we advise you to consult a specialised consultant. If you would like to have your analysis assessed, please contact:
