Casualty Risk Management

Aon takes a fresh approach to casualty risk management by starting with the client, going against the traditional industry broking model. We place more premium into the global marketplace than any other firm. In advance of every placement, we develop a deep understanding of your evolving risk profile, values, concerns and objectives, and work in partnership with you to design the optimal casualty broking program. Our Enhanced Casualty Value Proposition seamlessly combines Aon’s leadership in casualty broking with innovative benchmarking and diagnostic consulting solutions, arming clients with actionable data and insights to optimize their casualty programs to risk appetite and driving overall value in their insurance spend while yielding measurable cost savings.

With direct and regular access to senior management at major markets, we develop the best corporate casualty solutions to address your specific needs, solve issues that arise, and advocate on your behalf in claims scenarios. These strategic market relationships help us to negotiate the best pricing terms and conditions as well as coverage and claims recoveries for our clients. We personalize and customize your casualty broking model and are directly accountable to our clients.
