All Types of Property & Casualty Lines of Coverage
Risk Aggregation Strategy
Vanbridge’s Risk Aggregation Strategy was founded on the principle that Private Equity clients want to maximize buying power across their entire portfolio without losing the long-standing relationships portfolio companies maintain with their existing retail insurance brokers.
Vanbridge drives value through the buying power of our member Private Equity firms. Our PE members have over 350 insurance brokers handling 1,500 portfolio companies. We are the only firm that can leverage buying power because no broker change is required. Additionally, the insurance companies recognize the potential access to new business that Vanbridge represents in the marketplace. The Insurer’s lack of access to this business emanates from the fact that Vanbridge aggregates the transactions across all 350 brokers and 1,500 portfolio companies, driving a distribution efficiency that insurers are willing to pay for in the form of lower premium.
Vanbridge has successfully helped Private Equity Funds and Venture Capital investors aggregate all types of Property and Casualty lines of coverage, as well as, Group Employee Benefits.
Sample Engagement | Property Aggregation
Vanbridge designed, structured and deployed a three year locked in property program for one the world’s premiere private equity firms. The insurance company partner underwrote the program on a portfolio basis, which supported a portfolio premium discount of 15-30% with additional premium discounts of up to 10% as pre-agreed thresholds were met. Any companies currently insured with the portfolio underwriter were granted an immediate 5% premium credit. The portfolio approach generated an average savings of 23%.
