Client Success Stories

Healthcare: Reducing Cyber Balance Sheet Risk via a Captive

A healthcare organization had purchased cyber insurance for its hospital network, with each hospital responsible for its own losses within the self-insured retention. For some hospitals, the loss potential presented more risk than they were willing to bear on their balance sheets. As the organization had a captive, Aon’s Actuarial and Analytics team examined losses within the retention, estimating how much the captive would absorb under various scenarios and what impact this would have on the company and its hospitals. Thanks to our analysis, the organization was able to reduce the volatility on individual hospital balance sheets by increasing its use of the captive.

Construction: Project Pricing Analysis to Manage TCOR

A developer needed a risk financing solution for five potential construction projects, specifically looking for an innovative solution outside the traditional wrap-up insurance programs. Aon’s Actuarial and Analytics team performed a gold standard pricing analysis, which included separate investigations into each project. The output included cash flow projections for financial reporting and project close-out pricing. The detailed analysis around each project allowed the developer to weigh the cost versus risk for various program options for each project and move forward with an approach that suited their risk appetite and risk tolerance.
