NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2012

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Guy Carpenter & Company, LLC, a
leading global risk and reinsurance specialist, today announced the release of
GC ProfitPoint+,[1] an integrated portfolio management solution designed to
help insurance companies improve profitability, enhance underwriting
performance and drive growth.

A single, easy-to-use solution, GC ProfitPoint+ delivers powerful portfolio
planning and point-of-sale capabilities so insurers can set, calibrate and
monitor risk management strategy, while enabling line underwriters and agents
to make more informed decisions about individual policies prior to binding.

"With historically low investment returns and lingering weakness in the
economy, insurers are faced with increasing pressure to drive profitability
through solid underwriting results. In an industry predicated on data
analysis, insurers often find themselves inundated with massive amounts of
information that is fragmented and, therefore, not easily translated into
actionable business intelligence," commented Andrew Marcell, CEO of U.S.
Operations for Guy Carpenter. "By bringing together risk insights previously
assessed in isolation and coupling it with powerful analytical techniques, GC
ProfitPoint+ enables insurers to transform the way they view risk and develop
business strategy."

GC ProfitPoint+ leverages advanced portfolio management and visualization
techniques alongside predictive analytics to perform holistic profitability
analyses and achieve an optimal portfolio mix. Its mobile-enabled interface
delivers a comprehensive overview of an insurer's portfolio, as well as the
tools to help them examine and compare how different underwriting scenarios
may impact profitability. GC ProfitPoint+ can also be integrated into insurers
underwriting systems to help line underwriters with point-of-sale
decision-making about individual risks.

"A disciplined underwriting strategy is a crucial component of driving
profitable growth for insurers, now more than ever. It takes a careful balance
of detailed risk analysis and prudent portfolio-level planning, as well as the
insight and perspective gained by having a clear vision of where you are,
where you need to go, and what it will take to get there. GC ProfitPoint+
helps insurers reach their long-term business goals and gain a competitive
advantage in the market," commented John Tedeschi, Head of GC Analytics® -

"GC ProfitPoint+ demonstrates our commitment to helping our clients achieve
profitable growth," added Mr. Marcell. "Guy Carpenter has a long history of
investing in innovation, and we are dedicated to continuing to deliver
solutions for increasingly complex business challenges."
