Description

Validation Rules

Default Value

Treaty Type

One of the following treaty types:

  • Catastrophe Excess of Loss

  • Quota Share

  • Surplus Share

  • Per-Risk Excess of Loss

Required if you are creating a new record or editing an existing record.

Treaty ID

User-specified name of this treaty.

Surplus Share treaty IDs are not case-sensitive. For example, assume that you import four Exposure Sets, each of which contains a separate Surplus Share treaty, where the treaty IDs are: SS, Ss, sS, and ss. You then create an exposure view that includes all four Exposure Sets. The Reinsurance Program Manager does not consider the treaty IDs in those four files to be unique. As a result, when you create a Surplus Share program in the Reinsurance Program Manager, select that exposure view as the target exposure, and try to add a Surplus Share treaty for each Surplus Share treaty included in the exposure data, you will see that the only valid ID in the Treaty ID field is SS. To apply different limit terms to each of the surplus share treaties, make sure that the treaty IDs are unique before you import the exposures. This is especially important to keep in mind if you have a large portfolio used across multiple exposure views.

Touchstone displays a maximum of 9318 Surplus Share treaty IDs in the Treaty ID list.
