Inform your decision-making with tailored analytics

Lockton’s dedicated Analytics Insurance team provides bespoke analysis, market intelligence and insights to help you make informed decisions about risk retention and financing.

By sharing easy-to-interpret analysis, our in-house industry experts will help you evaluate and plan for the unique exposures you face, while providing you with an audit trail to present to key stakeholders.

We work with you to measure and understand your risks, using analytics to assess expected outcomes and scenarios, while evaluating new ways to finance your exposures. In short, our goal is to provide you the analysis you need to achieve the best possible solution.

What we bring to your business

Risk tolerance analysis

  • Using annual reports and other publicly available information, we will assess the impact of unbudgeted loss events on your key financial indicators

  • This enables you to understand your financial ability to take insurance risk

Risk appetite interviews

  • Through a series of interviews with key personnel, we will discuss your key risks and how you might finance them

  • This helps determine your financial willingness to take insurance risk. Coupled with your risk tolerance, this enables you to ensure your insurance is ideal for your business

Collateral estimates

  • Using claims data, risk exposures and claims development triangulations, we estimate the funds that should be set aside to pay for unsettled claims

  • This aids negotiations with insurers, allowing them to gauge the level of collateral required

Loss projections

  • Using your data and our own internal industry data, we project the aggregate losses that could occur for the forthcoming policy period

  • This gives insight into the potential quantum of your risks, enabling you to plan for ‘bad’ years and secure appropriate insurance for your risk appetite. It also provides estimates for the losses you will need to fund at a specific level of retention

Economic cost of risk analysis

  • Using our loss projections, we design the most financially efficient insurance structure that will:

    • Fit your risk appetite and tolerance

    • Use the most efficient blend of own and third party capital

  • This approach minimises your cost of risk and informs your decision-making regarding your insurance placement

Increasing fuel costs and the  ongoing need to reduce carbon emissions means that businesses continue to look at reducing their reliance on the fossil fuel internal combustion engine.  Electric vehicles are at present the main contender, although hydrogen-based technology could provide another alternative for commercial vehicles. Hydrogen has been used for many decades in various industries and provides a high energy density  fuel when burned, producing no greenhouse gases. However, hydrogen also presents several hazards and there are safety factors to consider when planning its storage and use. Hydrogen vehicles and refuelling stations: property considerations

Golden thread: BSA requirements create additional cyber exposure

The Building Safety Act 2022 and the associated Building (Higher-Risk Buildings Procedures) (England) Regulations 2023 introduced significant information retention requirements through their ‘golden thread’ provisions. These apply to buildings defined as ‘higher risk’ in the legislation.

The golden thread comprises information to create a proper understanding of a building and consequently the steps needed to keep both the building and people safe. It is envisioned as a building’s ‘single source of truth’, and to avoid obsolescence and omission errors, it is not intended to be held across multiple sources or even duplicated (save back up).

The legislation stipulates that the golden thread information must be held digitally, and to protect both personal information and the security of the building, it must be held securely.The Building Safety Act 2022 and the associated Building (Higher-Risk Buildings Procedures) (England) Regulations 2023 introduced significant information retention requirements through their ‘golden thread’ provisions.

Deepfake and the risk of vendor fraud: challenges and solutions for solicitors

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technology are increasing the threat to solicitors of deepfake-enabled vendor fraud, with conveyancing and property transactions a particular target. Where successful, these frauds can inflict significant financial and reputational harm, both on a firm and its clients.

To protect themselves, solicitors must adopt proactive measures to bolster their verification procedures and minimise their exposure.Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technology are increasing the threat to solicitors of deepfake-enabled vendor fraud, with conveyancing and property transactions a particular target.

Product recall: mitigating against labelling and packaging errors

Errors in the labelling and packaging process are one of the main drivers of product recalls in the global food and drink sector. Where such events occur, their impacts for businesses can be devastating – including consumer harm, financial loss, and reputational damage. As regulation tightens around labelling and packaging, and with a worsening economic climate driving potential errors, businesses must take steps to ensure their processes are robust.Errors in the labelling and packaging process are one of the main drivers of product recalls in the global food and drink sector.
