As the Indian market develops, access to a competitive reinsurance market becomes increasing important. With the support of strong international wordings and competitive terms the Indian Insurer can approach his clients with confidence particularly when his Reinsurance Broker is easily accessible both geographically and relationship-wise. At Howden India we qualify in all the above aspects.
