An usual reinsurance policy for insurance companies admits one or two layers of the payment deductions. Under optimality criterion of minimising the Conditional Tail Expectation (CTE) risk measure of the insurer’s total risk, this article generalises an optimal stop-loss reinsurance policy to an optimal multi-layer reinsurance policy. To achieve such optimal multi-layer reinsurance policy, this article starts from a given optimal stop-loss reinsurance policy f(⋅). In the first step, it cuts down the interval [0, ∞) into intervals [0, M
1) and [M
1, ∞). By shifting the origin of Cartesian coordinate system to (M
1)), and showing that under the CTE criteria
