Aon plc (London), a global professional services firm providing professional services range of insurance and other financial risk-mitigation products, has adopted Kovrr’s (Tel Aviv) impact-based modeling framework and Portfolio Exposure Management solution to analyze insurance portfolios and reinsurance treaties. The tools also help to improve cyber risk quantification within Aon’s capital models, offering direct integration to the firm’s ReMetrica capital modeling software.
“The cyber insurance sector faces a challenging time, characterised by generally high rate increases and ransomware claims,” comments Jon Laux, Head of Cyber Analytics, Reinsurance Solutions, Aon. “A robust impact-based modeling framework is key for assessing future events, and so we are excited to partner with Kovrr and leverage its proprietary view of cyber risk within our ReMetrica dynamic financial analysis [DFA] tool with the aim of helping our clients manage volatility and make better business decisions.”
Kovrr describes its portfolio exposure management solution as empowering (re)insurers to better assess pricing strategy, meet compliance requirements, validate or modify underwriting guidelines, inform risk transfer strategies and free up capital by improving reserve management. The solution is based on an extensive analysis of the characteristics of historical cyber risk events including triggers, propagation and impact, according to the vendor.
