Capital Solutions

New options … and the wisdom to know the right one.

To expand the range of solutions available to our clients, we have assembled the world's top team in insurance-linked securities (ILS).* By themselves, these men and women have participated in a quarter of all ILS volume since the inception of the market. We know the risks as well as the advantages, and how to integrate novel forms of capital into your overall portfolio.

Innovative structures require more than the usual diligence. Guy Carpenter’s financial analysts are a match for any on Wall Street or in The City. What sets us apart are our cadres of actuarial analysts, reserve analysts, catastrophe exposure analysts and others – people who understand the drivers of the numbers underneath the numbers that traditional financial analysts look at.

Innovation Delivered

Guy Carpenter delivers risk transfer innovations to efficiently meet our clients’ challenges. Our professionals continuously monitor client feedback and market conditions, then develop integrated solutions that combine leading-edge analytics knowledge with the expertise of our global broking specialists. These solutions include CWIL® and LETO solution for Solvency II.

A better index-linked solution. CWIL® is an index-based solution that helps Guy Carpenter clients hedge hurricane and earthquake risk at the ultra-granular county level, squeezing out basis risk. CWIL (County Weighted Index Loss) helps our clients recover losses faster – while saving 20% to 30% vs. other indexed solutions.

Of Note

Lower cost, more flexible cat bonds.

A new platform reduces the time and cost of sponsoring catastrophe bonds for Guy Carpenter clients, delivering advantages previously available only to the largest capacity buyers.
