  • Agriculture

    Guy Carpenter’s Agriculture Specialty practice develops comprehensive reinsurance solutions for agriculture risks worldwide, helping clients quantify exposures and manage portfolios for profitability.

     The practice includes coverage for growing crops, forestry and plantations, livestock and animal mortality and related enterprises. The susceptibility of crops to weather and price-related risks calls for sophisticated modeling solutions. In addition to quantifying risks from a reinsurance perspective for clients, Guy Carpenter also assists clients with underwriting and pricing tools that help maximize the profitability of their primary portfolios. Where models are insufficient, we have developed our own, including a proprietary fund allocation model and an intra-season predictive model for the United States and yield loss risk models for China and India.

    The Agriculture specialty is also actively involved in collaborating with academic institutions to develop innovative and efficient risk transfer tools for the farming community worldwide.

    Guy Carpenter’s tool suite enables us to estimate losses for agriculture books of business, and model risks in creative ways, which in turn enables the development of better reinsurance solutions for our clients.

  • Aviation and Aerospace

    Aviation Reinsurance

    The aviation industry has seen significant expansion over the last 20 years; Airlines, Aircraft Manufacturers and Service Providers require increasingly larger limits of liability. In addition, pandemics and natural perils are having a progressively greater influence on global aviation.  In 2020, against an already challenging background, COVID-19 had a huge impact on the Aviation industry leaving many operators and service providers battling for survival.  For Aviation Insurers it introduced new risks to their portfolio, such as huge ground-risk accumulations.  While global recovery is underway, it will take time for this to reach the levels attained prior to COVID-19. 

    Aviation Reinsurance is critical in mitigating the volatility that Aviation Insurers face and choosing the correct Reinsurance Broker to navigate these challenges with is vital.  Guy Carpenter are the largest Broker in the class with most experienced Aviation Reinsurance team in the world. We use our scale, scope and specialisation to create reinsurance solutions for writers of Airlines, Aerospace, General Aviation, Hull War and Liability War Risks.  We reduce Insurers’ risk, whether by traditional proportional or non-proportional structures, selectively placing facultative reinsurance, or by alternative reinsurance tools. 

    Retrocession

    In the same way Insurers need to manage their volatility, Reinsurers face the same challenges. Most buy Retrocession to protect catastrophe risk. At Guy Carpenter we have extensive expertise in this segment, and with market leading analytical tools it allows us to monitor reinsurers’ aggregates and design bespoke retrocessional solutions for them.

    Utilising traditional reinsurers and non – traditional (ILS) markets, we design and arrange both UNL coverage and ILW (insured loss warranty) products for a wide range of leading reinsurers.

    Our expertise goes beyond pure aviation based products and we work closely with colleagues in other specialty line divisions to provide multi class products which include Marine, Energy, Cyber, Terror, PA amongst other risks.

    Space Reinsurance

    Satellite Insurance has always been an exciting and cutting-edge business; however, it comes with its unique challenges.  It is a highly volatile class with a very limited number of Satellites & Constellations launched annually, but substantial risk associated, particularly during the launch phase.  In addition, manned space flight will herald new challenges for Insurers.  It is a highly specialized class with many underwriters having originally trained within the Space Industry before moving into the Insurance field. 

    Whether you are looking for portfolio management, specific launch, post separation or In Orbit coverage, the Guy Carpenter Space team has unrivalled experience and expertise.  Guy Carpenter are also the largest Broker within the Space reinsurance arena and can offer you bespoke reinsurance solutions whether Quota Share, Excess of Loss, Stop Loss or facultative placements.

  • Mortgage Credit

    Mortgage and Specialty Credit Segment

    Introduced in 2013, the Government Sponsored Entity (GSE) Credit Risk Transfer (CRT) program has been a tremendous success and has represented an entry point for many globally diversified reinsurers to participate in a new class of credit business with limited correlation to traditional property and casualty lines. The program has grown rapidly since inception with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the “GSEs”, transferring billions of dollars of risk to the capital and reinsurance markets every year despite recent changes made to the Enterprise Capital Rule Framework under the prior Administration.  Under the current Administration, CRT will likely evolve further.  However, one thing remains certain: CRT is here to stay and has applications in mortgage insurance, banking and broader credit arenas.  

    Guy Carpenter will remain at the center of the CRT evolution and continue to bring innovation and thought leadership to the credit risk transfer sector. As reinsurers seek to grow, profitably, credit risk transferrepresents one of the most compelling value propositions in today’s market.

    Our team assists in the process of helping insurers and reinsurers explore the opportunity set that exists within the credit risk transfer market. Investigating a new class of business and developing a business case can be an overwhelming proposition and the Guy Carpenter team will be with you each step of the way. From signing non-disclosure agreements to reviewing past submissions and data sets, our dedicated team can:

    • Walk you through the latest analytics being used to evaluate credit risk
    • Compare reinsurance market pricing to equivalent capital market pricing
    • Quantify the diversity benefits of mortgage credit
    • Estimate the capital benefits and ratings agency implications
    • Select opportunities that match your risk and return profile and appetite
    • Make introductions to the MGUs and actuarial consulting firms that counsel (re)insurers in the mortgage sector.
    • As you explore ways to grow profitably, let our dedicated team members introduce you to this excellent opportunity.
