Managing Risk

Analytics is the science of Decision Making.

Guy Carpenter analytics professionals provide critical measurement and insight in an industry where knowledge is a competitive advantage. Deeply specialized quantitative skills and sophisticated modeling assure that our clients are the best informed and best prepared to make franchise-changing risk and capital decisions.

Guy Carpenter brings objectivity, as well as expertise, to the business of catastrophe modeling. We help our clients select the best available models for each peril and geography, and help them evaluate and apply the results.

Where models are insufficient – or non-existent – we have developed our own. Guy Carpenter has pioneered flood modeling in Europe, Latin America and Asia, including the first flood models for several Chinese cities.

How good are your models?

Guy Carpenter’s Model Suitability Analysis (MSA)® puts alternative catastrophe models through a rigorous comparison, identifying strong points and deficits. The systematic approach does more than test the models. It helps Guy Carpenter clients fine-tune their own tolerances for risk and evaluate – not simply accept – a model’s result.

Confidence that your reinsurance program is optimal. Reinsurance buyers need to demonstrate benefits to many different constituents, each of whom focuses on different key decision metrics: ceded premium, capital cost savings, combined ratio benefit, earnings stabilization, even rating agency capital adequacy. Guy Carpenter’s Reinsurance Decision Tool provides you a transparent balanced scorecard of those metrics, giving you confidence in understanding and communicating the value of your reinsurance purchases.

Who in Guy Carpenter’s world knows the most about the challenge you face? We deliver that person. Our job is putting knowledge at your fingertips and know-how in the room. Analytics professionals dovetail with our Business Intelligence specialists who compile market data for benchmarking and pricing strategies.

MetaRisk® brings underwriting, reserve, catastrophe, credit, and risk assessment capabilities together in a single economic capital planning solution.
