Aon Benfield Launches PACE Platform

Aon Benfield has launched the PACE platform to help reinsurers monitor the aggregate catastrophe exposure across their portfolios. By having an enhanced understanding of their exposures, the new tool will enable reinsurers to make better use of their capital and in turn offer more competitive quotes and potentially new lines of business to insurers. With record levels of capital in the market, reinsurers are exploring new business opportunities that match their risk appetite. In response, Aon Benfield has developed PACE (Portfolio Accumulation for Control & Evaluation) to enable reinsurers to: evaluate the impact of individual programmes against their existing portfolio. This determines how much capital a programme consumes in relation to the rest of the portfolio and therefore how much of that business a reinsurer can afford to write; understand their overall accumulation of risks by highlighting which regions and perils are most exposed and perform 'what-if' analyses.
