With a redesigned magazine, even more in-depth coverage of the market, brand new sections and the forthcoming GRTV, there's never been a better time to be a part of Global Reinsurance

Learn how our cover star Grahame Chilton is finding life at Aon in the new-look Global Reinsurance. This in-depth profile is just the beginning. Aimed at cedants but catering to the needs of brokers and reinsurers, the new GR brings you more than just a cosmetic overhaul. We have introduced a whole host of new sections, building upon almost two decades of heritage.

GR strives to not only review the latest industry news, but to set it in context of the wider economic considerations of companies operating within the international insurance community. And to set the tone, we have asked former Hannover Re chief executive Wilhelm Zeller to kick off a new People & Opinion section, a forum for you to lead the market’s agenda and read about the latest opinions and attitudes.

Flick through the pages and you will also find an analysis of the fortunes of the Class of 2001 in our News Agenda, as well as cutting-edge insight from RSA’s reinsurance buyer Alan Fowler, in the market’s first ever section dedicated to the hopes, dreams, needs and wants of cedants.

What’s more, over the coming months we will deliver unrivalled analysis of markets, emerging countries, such as Turkey, as well as bread-and-butter pricing analysis and big-ticket issues, such as Solvency II. This month, deputy editor David Banks brings you the story of the downfall of Dubai set against a backdrop of a booming Middle East, and all just a few weeks before Global Reinsurance co-hosts the MultaQa conference in Qatar on 6-8 March.

Meanwhile, we will continue to bring you breaking news and analysis on globalreinsurance.com, which will very soon incorporate our brand new GRTV service. Finally, we will combine all the energy, context and insight from our sister brands Insurance Times and StrategicRISK to bring you a unique and colourful picture of the full insurance transaction.

We hope you enjoy it.
