Global re/insurance broker Aon has announced the launch of its Americas Capital Advisory team, aimed at strengthening re/insurers’ profitability in the face of low growth, shrinking underwriting margins and perpetually evolving rating agency criteria.
Aon says the key goal of this Capital Advisory team is to help re/insurers address a broad range of capital challenges and identify innovative or underutilised solutions.
Kelly Superczynski is to serve as Head of Capital Advisory, Americas with immediate effect alongside her current responsibilities as Europe Middle East and Africa, Head of Analytics for Aon’s Reinsurance Solutions business. She will report into George deMenocal, U.S Chief Executive Officer of Aon’s Reinsurance Solutions business.
“We are excited to offer clients a holistic approach to capital management and optimization,” said Superczynski.
“Our strategy to achieve this is bringing together the best of Aon to support insurers whether they require capital modeling, traditional reinsurance, alternative solutions or M&A – or a combination – to meet their goals.”
Aon says the team will comprise experts on rating agencies, alternative reinsurance solutions and Mergers & Acquisitions. In addition, it will closely collaborate with the recently-announced international Capital Advisory team, led by Eric Paire, in London.
“Our colleagues have successful track records assisting clients with a range of capital management and financial optimization challenges,” added deMenocal.
“Bringing these disciplines together to form a unified team will enable us to maximize their collective expertise and allow us to offer our clients a complete capital consultancy.”
