Foreword- Salvatore D. Zaffino- President and Chief Operating Officer, Guy Carpenter & Company, INC As this fourth edition of Reinsurance goes to press, the need for education and understanding of the reinsurance business has never been greater. Reinsurance professionals in the 21st century will need to be outside the reinsurance business. The convergence of financial services, the diversity and complexity of reinsurance programmes, and the global expansion of the marketplace contribute to the continuing need for education and training at all levels in our business. In this spirit we are pleased to play a major role in bringing to rpint the fourth edition of this extensive work. Professor Carter's book has played a major role in educating students of the business since the first edition in 1979. We believe that the current edition will help the reinsurance professional of the new century gain a better understanding of the workings of the business. This book reflects, as it should, the perspective of the author. As such, there are areas where readers, including ourselves, would find disagreement. Nonetheless, we do believe that the book will make an invaluable contribution to the professionalism of our business. As such, Guy Carpenter & Company is proud to be a sponsor of this text.
