General Reinsurance Life Australia Ltd

About Us
Message from our CEO

At Gen Re, we are committed to a direct business model and a disciplined, transparent, consistent approach to underwriting and claims expertise that we hope is meaningful to our clients.

We are excited about the opportunities ahead. There is significant uncertainty on almost every front - economic, political, climate, seismic and regulatory - which creates opportunities for those who underwrite with discipline and manage risk conservatively.


We strive to do both such that we can honor our commitments we have made to our clients around the world.

Thank you to our clients for the opportunity to partner with you. We take our commitments very seriously. We take pride in working with you to provide a product that is critical to both the economy and commerce in a responsible manner.

Sincerely,

Tad Montross

Chairman & CEO
