Obligatory Treaty


Obligatory Treaty — a reinsurance treaty between an insurer and a reinsurer (usually involving pro rata reinsurance), in which the insurer agrees to automatically cede all business that falls within the terms of the treaty. The reinsurer, in turn, is obligated to accept such business. "Automatic Treaty" is another term for obligatory treaty.
