Insurance & Reinsurance

Practice Groups

Luxembourg benefits from an attractive regime and a modern legal framework, mainly following the EU directives with a focus on life-insurance and reinsurance legislation. The jurisdiction is one of the world’s leading centres of expertise for reinsurance activities. Its legislation has influenced the preparation of the relevant EU directives.

Wildgen’s dedicated team provides advice to local, regional and international insurance and reinsurance entities as well as brokers, corporate clients and financial institutions for their insurance and reinsurance needs.

Our specialised team has a long-standing expertise in all Luxembourg legal aspects of insurance and reinsurance activities including the following:

Regulatory advice

Our team provides regular assistance and representation in regulatory issues and communications with the Luxembourg Insurance Commission such as for:

  • licence applications,
  • transaction approvals,
  • restructurings and portfolio transfers,
  • insurance intermediation.

Life insurance advice

Life insurance is a core activity in Luxembourg and our lawyers have a sound expertise in related matters such as:

  • distribution on a cross-border basis,
  • professional secrecy matters,
  • anti-money laundering procedures,
  • legal structuring of dedicated life-insurance policies invested in securities or non-traditional assets for high net worth individuals.

Reinsurance advice

Our lawyers specialise in reinsurance matters including:

  • structuring and negotiating M&A transactions related to reinsurance companies,
  • collateral and security structures,
  • asset/liability management,
  • reinsurance agreements. 

Wildgen is focusing on the development of Sharia compliant insurance and reinsurance products –takaful and retakaful-from Luxembourg. Wildgen benefits from a quite unique position locally in this new trend with the joint expertise of our Insurance & Reinsurance team and our dedicated Islamic finance team.

We also believe that securitisation of insurance or reinsurance risks and claims is a trend in which Luxembourg has a key role to play. Discussions are in progress within the Luxembourg insurance community leading to attractive solutions that our team is already working on.

Wildgen is a member of the ACA (Association des Compagnies d'Assurances et de Réassurances du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg).
