Individual risk offered by an insurer for acceptance or rejection by a reinsurer. Both parties are free to act in their own best interests regardless of any prior contractual arrangements. With proportional facultative reinsurance, the reinsurer assumes a proportional share of premiums and losses. On a nonproportional basis, the reinsurer is liable only for losses which exceed the insurer's retention level; premiums vary with loss expectation.
