Our risk-consulting specialists are here to support clients who are looking for solutions beyond traditional insurance, and who need an independent considered opinion at every renewal. We work closely with our placing team and are in daily contact with the ever-shifting markets – a crucial differentiator from traditional consultancy-only approaches. At any point in time, we know the types of packages and structures on offer, and from whom, and at what price. This means we’ll never recommend an option that simply can’t be bought.

Our services are independent, so we’ll only act in your best interests. You’ll have the confidence that, when you bring your proposal to the markets, you’ll have done rigorous stress-testing, looked at a range of alternative structures, and assessed a variety of risk-financing options. And because our risk consultants work closely with our placing team, it’s then a smooth and seamless transition to take your proposal to the leading underwriters. That said, our specialists are equally in demand from clients who don’t require our placement services, perhaps because they’re using captives and/or off-shore vehicles.

Services available

Our services include:

Analytics

We take a highly technical and analytical approach to risk consulting, linking together:

  • Financial analysis of risk tolerance
  • Natural catastrophe/terrorism modelling for exposure analysis
  • Loss forecasting
  • Business-interruption studies
  • Cyber-risk analysis
  • Shadow-rating of commercial market premiums
  • Technical analysis of premium discounts for higher retention levels
  • Pricing of alternatives (industry mutual & captive protections).

Supporting your decision-making

The insurance market can be volatile, so we believe analytics must be delivered in real time, alongside the placement process, and must factor-in the very latest market data and intelligence. We invest heavily in research & development, strengthening our access to such information as:

  • Industry loss activity
  • Premium rating trends
  • Insurance market capacity
  • Risk financing developments (captives, mutuals, etc)
  • Natural catastrophe parametric products
  • Weather risk protections
  • Regional developments (activity levels, legislation and regulation)
