Willis Towers Watson launches financial modeling tool for captive owners

August 1, 2018

ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ:WLTW), a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, today announced Captive Quantified, a first-of-its-kind digital tool to help organizations analyze financial feasibility and future profitability of their captive insurance strategies. The company will introduce the product at the 2018 Vermont Captive Insurance Association’s (VCIA’s) Annual Conference next week in Burlington, Vermont.

The web-based, interactive design automates due diligence and financial analysis to help organizations assess the potential value proposition of forming a captive insurance company compared to purchasing traditional insurance or retaining risk on its balance sheet. The tool also helps organizations identify the best combination of risks to include in a captive with a predetermined level of capitalization while identifying the best domicile for its unique needs. Additionally, users can perform live and interactive stress testing by changing assumptions and test scenarios to quickly evaluate capital adequacy and determine future capitalization needs.

Captive Quantified is the latest release in Willis Towers Watson’s interconnected suite of quantification models and can be used in combination with other tools to support an organization’s broader risk management strategy.

“Captive Quantified is a real game changer that goes far beyond typical financial analysis used for captive feasibility studies,” said Sean Rider, managing director, Consulting and Development, Global Captive practice, Willis Towers Watson. “This powerful tool will enable profoundly more sophisticated conversations with finance decision makers as to the value, volatility and efficacy of the captive proposition at both the feasibility stage and throughout the life of the captive. We are proud to present this at VCIA as a further demonstration of Willis Towers Watson’s leadership in the market.”

A team of Willis Towers Watson’s captive insurance consultants, actuarial consultants and alternative risk transfer experts will be on site at VCIA. Captive Quantified will be available for demonstration. For more information visit Captive Quantified.
