In Conversation With Axco RISCS

WATCH: Captives and their evolving place in a hard-market

Captives, their regulatory concerns and the efficacy of reinsurance programs in supporting them is the order of the day in this episode of 'In conversation with Axco'. David Hully of RISCS talks to us about regulatory challenges, how captives can support the SME and Mid-Corp market and what the hard market could look like over the next 24-36 months.

In Conversation With Axco Skyline

WATCH: How parametric is changing the insurance industry

From connected cows and hurricane-affected credit loans to cyber protection and more traditional classes, parametric is providing new ways of covering gaps, bringing additional capacity and providing solutions to customers worldwide. Laurent Sabatie of Skyline Partners talks to us about regulatory challenges, Skyline’s diverse product suite, underwriting capacity with industry partners and the use of technology that helps administer risk transfer at a large scale.


WATCH - Changing Risk Landscape: The Outlook

The volatile socio-political environment has thrown the trade credit and political risk market into the limelight again as corporate risk and insurance managers work out how to protect their companies in times of political unrest, further supply chain disruption and the growing cyber risk as we all have a greater reliance on technology. We consider whether these risks are insurable and how they can be incorporated into a global programme.

Supporting employees in times of conflict

A client recently asked Axco if we knew how they could help support their employees in Ukraine. Through ideas and observations gathered from local insights and multinational corporations, with active initiatives in both Ukraine and Russia, we at Axco are in a privileged position to collate practical solutions based on our global knowledge. These will, hopefully, be able to help those in conflict zones and contribute some respite to local employees in the face of war’s brutal outcomes.
