Aon Benfield, a premier reinsurance intermediary and capital advisor, is partnering with the Institute of Catastrophe Risk Management (ICRM) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore to sponsor two new research projects.
As part of Aon Benfield Research’s new academic and industry collaboration, which aims to deliver relevant research to the re/insurance industry, the new projects comprise:
• Assessing the impact of catastrophes on maritime business, by Lay Hui Ivy Tan from the Maritime School;
• Asian motor liability, by Chong It Tan from the Actuarial School.
George Attard, Head of Aon Benfield Analytics in Singapore, commented: “This is a great opportunity to partner with one of the leading educational institutions in Asia and to learn from each other to improve risk awareness. Motor liability and catastrophe risk in marine business are both extremely relevant and growing fields in Asia, so it was important to make this investment on behalf of our clients, while further supporting academia in the region.”
