It is important to note that the state reinsurance company will be established as a joint stock company and 100% of the shares will be owned by the Central Bank of Russia, with the further possibility to sell a part of the shares.

Thus, the obligations of ceding of risks by the re/insurance companies to the state reinsurer will start sixty days after the date of issue of license to the National State Reinsurance Company, but not earlier than January 1st, 2017.

It is expected that the state reinsurance company's capital will be more than RUB 70 billion.
