Organisations worldwide are increasingly impacted by emerging, complex challenges that could materially affect future goals. In this rapidly-changing environment, business leaders need more than historical views to manage risk, allocate capital, and achieve results: They need to see around the next corner.

Economic Cost of Risk (ECOR)
The traditional measure of risk exposure, total cost of risk (TCOR) does not typically account for fluctuations in loss from year to year as it typically only calculates premium and retained claims costs. In the modern risk environment, senior leaders need to understand and account for this volatility. Our ECOR measure looks at volatility through an implied risk charge (IRC), which is added to the traditional TCOR equation. IRC calculates the cost of volatility that is unique to each company through a combination of risk volatility and cost of capital. Our ECOR analytical framework integrates risk management decision making and financial planning.
Global Loss Data Library (LDL)
By leveraging our unmatched claims database, we are uniquely positioned to answer the question, ‘What losses might we incur?’ The Marsh Global Loss Data Library represents more than US$300 billion in aggregate claims. Our database contains losses in dozens of countries around the world, and more than 20 industries, to provide you with a more complete picture of current and emerging trends in risk.
