Aon’s Delegated Investment Webinar: Your buyout journey – doing it with more certainly & less cost

Online Event

14:15 – 15:00pm

There are many different steps involved in getting your scheme prepared for a successful buyout transaction. But how far in advance should you start planning and how can this translate to more certainty and less cost for your scheme?

We believe the optimal time to start preparing is 7-10 years before you buy out. Careful planning and management of your investment strategy alongside wider strategic activities can result in material cost savings, more certainty and capturing of early opportunities.

In this webinar, specialists from our investment and risk settlement teams will explore practical tips on planning a successful journey. You’ll hear from an insurer, who will share first-hand experiences on why thinking like an insurer can provide attractive pricing terms.

Key topics that will be discussed include:

  • How to prepare your assets at the outset and as you move closer to buyout – Lucy Barron, Investment Partner
  • Considerations and benefits of doing phased buy-ins and managing investment through the broking process – Mike Edwards, Partner, Risk Settlement
  • What makes a scheme more attractive to insurers in a busy market – Sammy Cooper-Smith, Rothesay

Please register here to attend this webinar - there will also be opportunities to ask questions to our experts through the live event.

Ten years after: lessons learnt from the New Zealand earthquake

On February 22, 2011, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake hit New Zealand’s South Island. For this event, with the epicenter very close to the cities of Christchurch and Lyttelton, the shaking was more destructive and the liquefaction more extensive than any previous earthquake in New Zealand’s recent history. The earthquake caused USD27bn in damage, equating to 20% of GDP, with 185 people losing their lives and 15,000 losing their homes. We explore how the re/insurance market has matured with products adapted to local requirements and the evolution of rigorously-enforced building codes.

Back to the Future for Catastrophe and Climate Risk

We look backwards (at 2011) and forwards (at future decades) to understand weather peril projections and their financial implications. Sharanjit Paddam from QBE Group, who led the Climate Measurement Standards Initiative (CMSI), will discuss the recommendations for the climate change analytics that will drive the insurance industry while Aon’s Peter Cheesman and James Knight provide examples of the standards in practice.
