Aon Benfield forms dedicated reinsurance analysis team

Aon Benfield has formed a Market Analysis team within Aon Benfield Analytics.

The new unit will provide in-depth reports on reinsurers and insight into reinsurance market trends, allowing Aon Benfield Research to focus entirely on academic and industry research collaboration.

Over the past year, the size of Aon’s team specialising in the analysis of reinsurance markets has more than doubled and the decision to form a dedicated unit reflects increased emphasis on credit risk.

The intermediary’s head of international market analysis, Mike Van Slooten, comments: “There is a huge amount of information in the reinsurance market. Our clients need a trusted source to quickly tell them what is important and how it will impact them.”

According to Mike McClane, head of US and Bermuda market analysis: “The balance sheets of reinsurers are becoming increasingly complex … due to sophisticated investments, securitizations, hedging strategies and a more complex capital structure, including contingent capital and hybrid equity.”
