LONDON-Tuesday 18 September 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Middle East and North African (MENA) reinsurance industry is characterised by its challenging market conditions, borne out of unabating pressure on pricing, overcapacity, and a higher-than-expected number of large losses in recent years, according to a new report by A.M.
