In this fiercely competitive industry sector, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity has become commonplace, with European deal values reaching an all-time high in 2018.
For technology companies, risk management can be challenging, simply because the stakes are so high. Multiple client business functions rely on the services you provide.
Success hinges on the ability to seize opportunities afforded by innovation in a rapidly-changing marketplace — while managing the risks. Data breaches and other cyber risks are growing. The increase in the sharing economy and mobility sector brings with it additional risks, fintechs are rising to challenge existing traditional financial companies, and media liability claims proliferate as new digital formats and distribution channels appear. Supply chain bottle-necks threaten the global flow of hardware, software, and raw materials. And convergence and collaboration — both between and within sectors — are reshaping the landscape.
Marsh can help you understand and manage these risks using some of the industry’s leading risk assessment tools, data, analytics, and technology. With these tools and one of the technology sector’s most comprehensive claims database, we quantify and prioritise exposures, helping to educate insurers, then customise coverage to align with your organisation’s risk profile. And, with one of the largest technology practices in the industry, we have the knowledge of the sector to provide acute insights that help you grow with confidence.
The results: a clearer understanding of your risk management programme, optimised operational costs, and decreased volatility.
