SCOR is elected "Best Global Reinsurance Company"

Reactions magazine held its prestigious "Global Awards" 2010 on the evening of 30 September 2010 in New York. The "Global Awards" celebrate each year the most successful global players in the insurance, reinsurance and brokerage industry. SCOR was named "Best Global Reinsurance Company" at the awards.

Reactions magazine awards this title every year based on an in-depth survey of insurance and reinsurance market players throughout the world.

Denis Kessler, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of SCOR, commented: "This award recognises the considerable accomplishments of all SCOR's teams over the past few years. SCOR is a global company operating in more than 120 countries across the world, following a profit-based underwriting policy and conducting business selectively in both Life and Non-Life reinsurance. This award constitutes an incentive to continue the Group's development, as set out in our new strategic plan for 2010-2013, "Strong Momentum"."
