Created and published by IRLA, the Insurance & Reinsurance Legacy Association, and its members, as an introduction to the Association, the purpose of and reasons for (re)insurance business transfers and the mechanisms and services that support them. The handbook also provides a precis of business operations, company finances, legal first principles and other matters of legacy interest in the early 2020s.
