About Gen Re

A career at Gen Re means joining a global organization delivering reinsurance solutions to companies in all segments of the insurance industry. Gen Re, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is one of the leading reinsurers in the world specializing in property/casualty and life/health reinsurance. We are represented by more than 40 branch and subsidiary offices in key reinsurance markets.

What We Do

Reinsurance is the transferring of portions of risk portfolios from an insurance company to a reinsurer to reduce the insurance company's likelihood of having to pay all of a large obligation resulting from the primary insurance claim. The concept is to reduce the large loss to a single entity by diversifying risks across alternative institutions and protecting an individual institution's solvency. Reinsurance is often described as insurance for insurance companies.


The Gen Re culture values excellence, integrity, personal responsibility, diversity and optimism. Our flat management structure and team-based environment promote collaboration and free flowing communication. Gen Re employees enjoy a strong work/life balance, and a comprehensive benefits and compensation structure.

A Gen Re career begins with Jump School where employees are exposed to all aspects of the reinsurance business, and training continues throughout ones' career at Gen Re. Additionally, Gen Re participates in a mentoring program designed to maximize our new employee's impact to the organization.
