Insurance, Reinsurance and Risk Management

CLOSED
Introduction to the Stream

From increasing demand for natural resources driven by the dynamism of the BRIC economies to the impact on oil prices of ongoing political instability in the Middle East, the issues that face our Insurance, Reinsurance and Risk Management business are many and varied. The constant threat of terrorism, kidnap, military coups and piracy that affect the operations of construction companies, oil producers, airlines, shipping companies and other global businesses all fall into this complex mix.

Life is full of risk; it can't be controlled, but it can be managed. Our Insurance, Reinsurance and Risk Management Stream predicts and spreads risk so, in the event of major catastrophes, economies can keep going and people can get on with their lives. For example, Aon co-sponsors Tropical Storm Risk (TSR), which provides real-time mapping and prediction of tropical cyclone windfields worldwide, and provides an outlook report to coincide with the start of the Atlantic hurricane season.
