Risk Transfer Solutions for Evolving Technologies


Much attention is being given to cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) – and with good reason. Cryptocurrency prices continue to be volatile; blockchain use cases are apparent across a variety of industries; and startups continue to announce ICOs as alternative means of raising capital, even amidst regulatory investigations.

Key questions to consider include:

  • How do you protect against loss of cryptocurrency from both internal and external theft?
  • How does blockchain utilization impact technology exposures and risk transfer?
  • What are the heightened risks of raising capital via ICOs and the implications for directors, officers, and investors?

Aon has been working to understand these evolving technologies and actively collaborates with the insurance marketplace to develop innovative risk transfer solutions.
