Lacking good solutions, $25 billion of Marsh clients’ premium is going to captives. Hey! Steel City Re's insurance is made for complex risk!

Captives are a solution to the lack of innovation. Martin South, president and chief executive officer, Marsh, was being interview by Penny Randall Seach, group chief underwriting officer, Zurich Insurance Company in a Global CEO fireside discussion at AIRMIC called ‘Global forces driving change: a future outlook’ Because the industry is not offering products that address clients’s needs as risks evolve, “some $25 billion of Marsh clients’ premium is now being retained using this form of risk transfer.“ In other news, insurer AXA is reorganizing US operations. Layoffs are expected. Meanwhile, Steel City Re has on offer a remarkably innovative original outcome-based solution to the most complex risk of all. It is a solution insureds have wanted since 2005, and it is backed today by Tokio Marine Kiln.

Reputation risk emerges from a sea of choice. Choice can be influenced. “What was effective at an individual level was targeting habits (helping people to stop or start a behavior), behavioral attitudes (having people associate certain behaviors as being “good” or “bad”), and behavioral skills (having people learn how to remove obstacles to their behavior).

Reputation risk management is an efficient strategy for interconnected risk. “Risk interconnectivity — the interdependence of various risks, illustrating how one risk can affect or amplify others across systems — is of growing concern to global risk managers. […] Andrew Chung, litigation, arbitration and investigations partner at Linklaters, said the key enterprise risks that are top of mind for clients today are interconnected. He explained: “We are seeing how risks across financial crime, cyber, ESG and energy transition, digital transformation and AI, and geopolitics including supply chain and sanctions all have common elements and data, so now require an enterprise-wide and holistic lens more than ever, to properly manage the risks.”
