Risk Transfer

Capability Overview

Risk Transfer

We assist clients with their insurance buying decisions, aiming to optimize the balance of risk transfer and retention financing through valuation and analysis.

Creating a Comprehensive Approach to Risk Transfer

Insurance remains a key risk transfer tool in most organizations, but all too often, off-the-shelf insurance products purchased by organizations don't address specific underlying risks and, as such, may not achieve an optimum risk transfer. Even if the product fits well initially, the challenge is to ensure that changes in the organization’s risk profile feed into the product design and selection.

This is where a thorough risk analysis process becomes essential to determine key areas of risk, their financial impact, and the necessary coverage limits required for insurance.

At Aon, we bring extensive global market relationships, broking experience, and analytical tools to help our clients by delivering an optimal risk transfer program. Aon leverages proprietary data and analytics to provide custom risk transfer and mitigation guidance to help organizations better identify and quantify their risk exposure.

By taking a comprehensive approach that considers changes to an organization's risk profile, we design insurance solutions that strive to achieve an optimum risk transfer for businesses across all industries.
