In realizing the goal of profitable growth, (re)insurers require a trusted partner to help them manage a rapidly evolving regulatory and rating agency environment.
Rating Agency Advisory
Ratings are a key indicator for many insurers and (re)insurance buyers. Amid evolving rating agency concerns and the complexity of enterprise risk management (ERM) requirements, Guy Carpenter Strategic Advisory provides clarity. We help clients take a proactive approach to enhance risk-adjusted capitalization, build up ERM, improve communications with rating agencies and optimize rating outcomes.
The Guy Carpenter Rating Agency Advisory team helps clients understand the factors that influence ratings, identify the information and opportunities that can positively (and negatively) impact assessments and strategically communicate with rating agencies. We have a long and proven track record of providing technically credible and practical ratings advice and solutions.
Our extensive rating agency experience and insight, coupled with Guy Carpenter’s expertise in risk management, reinsurance and capital markets, uniquely position us to provide clients with best-in-class advice and solutions to achieve ratings goals. Additionally, we are able to embed this knowledge into the reinsurance broking and GC Securities* mergers and acquisitions and insurance-linked securities offerings, ensuring that strategic decisions are reviewed for their impact on existing ratings.
The Rating Advisory team delivers a wide range of comprehensive advisory services, including indicative rating assessment, financial modeling and analysis, presentation support and ERM advisory.
