increase the number of reinstatements on the lower layers
Explanation:
"Reconstitutions de garantie" are reinstatements of cover. The amount of cover given by the reinsurance treaty is gradually used up by claims paid, and treaties normally provide for a certain number of "reinstatements" - topping up the cover amount to its previous level - either free of charge or for a specified additional premium.
