French term or phrase: sinistre de pointe
I'm afraid I can't say too much for reasons of confidentiality.

It's contrasting "sinstre de pointe" with "sinistre de fréquence".


"Couverture globalisée des entités par la mise en placeₒ:

D’une protection proportionnelle sur les souscriptions brutes qui prend la forme d’un traité quote-part et qui vise à absorber les sinistres de fréquence ;

D’une protection de la rétention des entités du Groupe contre les sinistres de pointe, sous la forme d’un Excédent de sinistre par risque et par événementₒ;"

Many thanks!

Explanation:
I believe in this case the distinction is being made between large claims (sinistre de point) and attritional claims (sinistre de fréquence).

agree  philgoddard: Yes, it's contrasting proportional cover, which pays a percentage of all losses, with excess of loss cover, covering losses above a certain level.
