form of proportional reinsurance under which the reinsurer assumes a contractually set percentage share of the written risk. Since the insurer is responsible for acquisition, pricing, policy administration and claims handling, the administrative expenditure for the reinsurer is very low.

This commission can amount to 15% to 50% of the original premium depending upon the market and cost situation.
