Catastrophe Risk & Exposure Management

With the enhanced ability of the insurance industry to monitor their exposure to catastrophe risk, our clients are continually strengthening and adding resources to this area of their business. In this world of such rapid development in computer technology, processes and tools our clients use to monitor their risk and exposure are evolving exponentially fast. Two years in this field can seem like an eternity of progress. With these stronger computational methods our clients in general are currently seeking to obtain more granular understanding of how their models work, and highly value their staff in this discipline who also understand capital modelling side of risk. Catastrophe risk is more prestigious than it used to be, and interaction with underwriting, broking and actuarial functions are more extensive than ever before. Potential to un-modelled perils is recognised as a key issue which has led many of our clients to extensive research and new risk product offerings.

Regulatory changes such as implementation and adjustment to Solvency 2 and IFRS Reporting is a current market challenge which has resulted in huge investment and the creation of new permanent / project opportunities in these areas. Niche roles within an insurance finance function such as syndicate accounting & controllership are becoming more varied and challenging than they used to be, which has resulted in more talented professionals entering this area. Companies across Insurance Broking and Underwriting in particular are looking to cut costs in challenging market conditions and are benefitting from outsourcing and streamlining. Candidates who have skills in organisational redesign and transformation have been in particular demand recently by many of our clients.

Our team is now structured to allow us to deliver a service across a range of managerial levels within a typical finance function. This ranges from £70k accounting positions to top level roles.
