Who are IFTRIP?

The inaugural National Terrorism Reinsurance Pools Congress was organised by Pool Re and held in London during October 2015. It provided, amongst other things, an illustration of what might be achieved by individual national terrorism pools and schemes cooperating more closely. The Congress considered a number of options for increased collaboration, including the creation of a formalised arrangement, one element of which was for the Congress to become an annual event.

In an effort to provide greater collaboration and promote initiatives between the world’s terrorism reinsurance entities, the International Forum of Terrorism Risk (Re)Insurance Pools (IFTRIP) was established following endorsement at the ARPC congress in October 2016. Francois Vilnet, vice president of GAREAT, has assumed the role of inaugural president of IFTRIP.

Terrorism, and its effects, are indeed a growing threat worldwide which demand a concerted global response from (re)insurance markets and governments. The level of knowledge and risk management developed in national terrorism pools and schemes can form part of this response.

IFTRIP provides members and opportunity to share expertise and experience to combat the threat of potential major economic loss resulting from terrorism.
