While the insurance-linked securities market remains very active in 2015, Aon Benfield’s investment banking team is seeing growth in several other diverse areas, as Paul Schultz, CEO, Aon Securities, tells Intelligent Insurer.
Alternative capital was perhaps the main talking point at the 2014 Rendez-Vous, so has it been a busy 12 months for Aon Securities?
The short answer is yes, but while insurance-linked securities (ILS) continues to be a core focus, our teams have been equally busy in other areas. The mergers and acquisitions (M&A) environment is currently very active, so as an investment bank with a re/insurance specialty Aon Securities is seeing many other opportunities from an advisory perspective. Equally exciting have been the developments within our PathWise Solutions Group, where the potential for business growth is significant.
