Legacy solutions

Delivering results on your non-core business


Understanding your challenges

Legacy business may be old discontinued lines, markets or clients no longer core to strategic objectives. Managing legacy business is often a complex and time consuming task that can distract you from your core business. You may be considering how to design and/ or implement the optimal legacy strategy for your business that includes the right sourcing model to:

  • Manage reputational risk and ensure service quality through proactive current claims handling
  • Reduce volatility, release booked reserves and maximise capital extraction prior to exit
  • Minimise operational risk such as redundant/ legacy IT systems, key staff retention
  • Reduce operational costs
  • Understand and manage multiple regulatory environments

We have a significant track record in legacy outsourcing and strategic consulting.

Our most recent appointment was the Groupama Transport UK and Singapore marine legacy portfolios which went into run-off in 2012.

The value we deliver

  • Developing and implementing effective strategies for non-core operations, to extract maximum value
  • Active claims management protecting clients’ reputation while reducing liabilities and uncertainty.
  • Reduction of capital requirements through releasing closed and redundant reserves
  • Maximising value of assets by recovering trapped premiums, refunds and reinsurer cash as well as releasing unsubstantiated LOCs, CCAFs and OCAs
