Over the past several years, I authored several reinsurance commentaries for my friends at International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (“IRMI”) on follow-the-fortunes and follow-the-settlements as part of IRMI’s Expert Commentary series on IRMI.com.
This month, I took the liberty of updating, revising and combining all the past Commentaries on the follow-the-fortunes doctrine and follow-the-settlements, including aggregation, into a new Commentary. You can read the new Commentary here. This is part of my series of Commentaries on reinsurance terminology. I hope you find it useful.
