Capital is the lifeblood of business and society, constantly evolving in sophistication. Driven by new technology and new types of assets. Creating ever more risk, but also new opportunities.
Fueling Sustainable Growth
Whether you’re an industry leader, represent a government organization or run a small business, capital has always been critical to sustainable growth. But, in the face of increasing risk and complexity, we all need to be more creative and successful in our approach to capital. This is illustrated by our research which found that of the total $268 billion global economic losses from natural catastrophes in 2020, only $97 billion was covered by insurance.
By partnering with us, our clients know that they are accessing cutting-edge analytics and proprietary solutions. One solution worth mentioning is our Intellectual Property Capital Market Solution. This allows clients to access capital markets using collateral backed by their intellectual property.
One of the first deals to use this solution involved a client using its intellectual property as collateral to borrow more than $100 million from a lender, with the value of that collateral insured based on a collateral protection insurance policy. The policy was made possible using our proprietary valuation tools. With our innovative solution, the client was able to raise additional funds without diluting its equity.
Helping Clients Find the Capital — And Confidence — They Need
Our experts use data and analytics to enable clients to make better decisions that help them access new forms of capital.
It might be decisions on how to match a company’s risks with the right capital structure or helping governments fund emergency recovery through the sourcing of new capital. It can be formulating the true value of every asset both physical and intangible and the measures needed to protect them all against the everyday threats — as well as any possible catastrophic events on the horizon.
