The Company

Simplifying reinsurance for the most complex risks in the world.

Guy Carpenter places over $1.6 billion in facultative reinsurance, tapping global markets to find the most comprehensive and competitive terms for our clients. We are the industry leader in automatic and semiautomatic programs that enable clients to address individual risks with precision – while keeping operating tempos high and costs low.

Speed. Expertise. Superior relationships. Automatic and semiautomatic reinsurance structures for property and casualty help Guy Carpenter clients make the most of opportunities, improve capital management and advance underwriting strategies. These programs deliver more cost-effective risk transfer solutions than some treaty risk transfer products, while providing additional limits and/or modifying attachment points. They integrate seamless and efficient reinsurance risk cessions, accounting and processing functions. Clients are able to carve out a segment of exposure to enhance treaty placement:  an Auto Carve Out, for example, or Property “RMS 11” exposures.

Sophisticated solutions. In addition to market access, Guy Carpenter clients benefit from deeply specialized expertise in virtually every area of insurable risk: from trucks in Indonesia to petroleum facilities in Latin America, or a fleet of leased aircraft. Whatever your reinsurance challenge, GC Fac® can provide the sophistication you need with the simplicity of monthly reporting.

In the U.S., Guy Carpenter's facultative reinsurance platform helps insurers transfer exceptional individual risks on a same- or next-day basis, with industry-leading efficiency. Most risks can now be ceded to a standing facility, bound within 48 hours and reported in a monthly bordereau: one call, one report, one bill, and one-stop claims tracking. Guy Carpenter aggregates and analyzes all client data affording our clients with reinsurance rate analysis, reinsurer limits profiles and claims reconciliation.
