Innovative, enterprise-wide solutions for complex global risks
Maximising profitability has forced businesses to integrate core enterprise strategies with evolving technological capabilities in digitization, processing, and ultimate delivery. While traditional risk management protocols remain centered around profitability, continuity and growth, strategic and contingency planning for performance management have evolved over time to meet the demand of a consolidating and ever globalizing economy.
The challenge remains for corporations to limit the risk to investment, performance and adaptability in the event of shocks to the enterprise. However, technology has forever changed the speed with which business enterprise risk can be derailed, with the potential for substantial financial and operational implications.
As such, the role of the insurance provider must evolve.
Given the landscape of the modern business, “umbrella” style insurance products should no longer be the norm. Rather, insurance solutions should be developed by blending an understanding of a client’s core business and helping to match any strategic planning and performance management initiatives with the perceived enterprise risk. This approach allows us to develop a balance of differentiated products and services which we are able to deploy to our target markets.
It is with this approach that we deliver our current propositions, which will remain at the core of our product development moving forward.

THE MGU ADVANTAGE
Managing General Agencies (MGAs) and Managing General Underwriters (MGUs) have played an integral role in Lloyd’s strategy for decades. As a coverholder, the MGA/MGU model is an attractive conduit for allowing London and company markets to access expertise, distribution, and new products. Further, the model allows agents and brokers to access local regional markets, allowing service, document issuance, premium collection, and claims payment with limited initial capital or resource deployment.
The MGA model is a tested, viable strategy for agents and brokers as well as capital alignment. Ryan Specialty Group has created a valued network of MGUs in niche areas of underwriting, aligning knowledge and expertise, with quality capacity providers. With a strong presence through RSG Underwriting Manager’s (RSGUM) existing network of companies, RSGUM provides carriers the opportunity for rapid diversification and scale, creating a model for sustainability over time.
