Case study

Using Risk Finance Optimization to better leverage a transportation captive

The Challenge

A transportation services client specializing in logistics was anticipating a challenging auto liability renewal.   The client was looking for analytical support in determining their preferred insurance structures.  Marsh’s client team used Blue[i] Risk Finance Optimization Analytics to help the client determine how to leverage their captive efficiently to finance the risk, given capacity and pricing constraints of the insurance market.  With Blue[i] RFO analytics, the team provided the client with a data decision framework for their cost of risk.

The Solution

Using the Blue[i] RFO Analytics, the team created a baseline cost of risk and identified areas where the client could see cost pressure.  Blue[i] RFO Analytics identified layers of insurance that could be more efficiently retained versus transferred, leveraging the client’s captive balance sheet.

The Results

Blue[i] RFO Analytics provided the support the client needed to discuss with management.  The client was able to avoid material fixed premium increases without needing additional capital for the captive while also reducing total cost of risk.
