Key takeaways

Solid data critical to secure coverage.

Underwriters are demanding more information before deciding whether to take on a risk. Insureds need to be prepared to share values, exposures, and claims information during the placement or renewal process.

Complex global programs require planning.

As they structure their global programs, companies should focus on consistency of coverage and claims management, compliance with local regulations, and administrative efficiencies.

Understand potential responses to current and emerging risks.

Multinational companies structuring a global program should constantly review how their coverage would respond to current and emerging risks and make agile changes where necessary.
