Verisk Logo 40415ISO, a division of Verisk Analytics, has launched a new initiative that will see it targeting the reinsurance and ILS space as it seeks to develop data and analytics tools which make operating, capital and capacity management more efficient.

One of the focuses will be on helping insurance-linked securities (ILS) specialists and reinsurers to put their capital to work, a timely focus given the constant discussion of excess capital and capacity in the reinsurance marketplace.

The current market conditions have motivated ISO to take a deeper look at ILS and reinsurance, leading it to believe that the market dynamic requires new solutions in order to open up a wider range of strategic alternatives.
