Insurance

We help leading insurers across the globe meet their strategic and operational goals.

Our global network of deeply experienced insurance partners work with property and casualty (P&C), life insurance, and reinsurance carriers, industry associations, brokers, and other institutions to address issues on topics including strategy, organization, operations, technology, marketing, sales, and risk. We focus on core operating capabilities and help clients take a long-term, through-cycle view of the evolving competitive and regulatory landscape.

Our expertise in P&C insurance encompasses claims management, where we work with clients to reduce costs through high-quality processes; underwriting, where we help commercial lines carriers improve their technical results; and operations and technology, supporting insurers with operating model review and redesign, outsourcing and offshoring, and infrastructure consolidation.

We help life insurers optimize capital and use value creation as a key metric; we provide insights on branding strategy, sales force performance improvement, and distribution; and we help clients assess the impact of regulatory change.
