Executive Summary We believe the following are critical to a successful Facultative strategy Defining A Successful Programme JLT Re works with clients to help develop and coordinate their Fac purchasing strategy and strengthen their position in this key area of reinsurance - We help clients reduce reinsurance premium spend while maintaining or improving their level of reinsurance protection/cost of capital - We help clients free up capacity in order to write additional business and pursue growth opportunities We help clients create a flexible reinsurance purchasing plan which will help during high growth periods and maintain stability as a book is developed. - We help clients optimise the impact of profitable Fac spend with key counterparty relationships. - We help clients bundle homogenous business into cost effective facilities JLT Re is uniquely positioned to assist (talent, global network, technology/analytics, benchmarking, market strength) - JLT Re can offer an unbiased consultative portfolio evaluation - JLT Re works in close collaboration with the broader JLT Re group resources to offer a truly integrated capital solutions approach - JLT Re will deliver quantifiable solutions that are aligned with our clients’ short, medium, and long-term strategic objectives. Core Beliefs Fac has is commonly sourced in a decentralised
model. Five key issue drive the development of our FPO offering: 1 2 Fac has historically addressed tactical issues in a line underwriter’s book but was not treated as a portfolio of risk transfer 3 Approaching Fac purchases in a truly integrated, holistic manner can drive real improvements in growth and Return on Equity (ROE) 4 Fac purchasing decisions should be more technical and fully aligned with corporate perspective and guidelines Optimising Fac spend requires putting it in the context of current treaty and risk retention strategies as well as incorporating perspectives and best practices from outside the organisation 5 Consultative Review of Programme Integrated Capital Solutions Global Approach - A well-defined Fac strategy helps ensure consistency and uniformity in approach
