  • The most comprehensive, user-friendly ECM suite of tools
  • Underpinned by URS, the market-leading independent financial ECM software firm

JLT Re, the global provider of reinsurance broking and consultancy, is pleased to announce the launch of ANSER, ANalytics Software for the Evaluation of Risk. JLT Re have engaged Ultimate Risk Solutions (URS), the leading independent ECM software firm, to deliver the ANSER analytics suite of tools.

Mike Reynolds, Global CEO, JLT Re, said “In today’s market, ECM technology must meet a wide range of demands and must do so in a way that is personalised for each client’s unique specifications. ANSER is the ECM tool suite which can be completely tailored to individual clients’ needs. JLT Re prides itself on providing bespoke analytical insights – as opposed to blanket solutions – and we will be delivering these with ANSER.”

JLT Re will immediately be able to offer a customised interface which will subsequently support a suite of new analytical and strategic advisory tools.

David Flandro, Global head of Analytics, JLT Re, said “ANSER is custom-built for the client, whether you are in North America, EMEA, LatAm or Asia. The tool suite is underpinned by a user-friendly ECM which can be used for pricing, portfolio modelling, reserve analysis, and predictive modelling. It includes rating agency, regulatory capital, franchise value and strategic expansion (STEM) modules and much more. Users may incorporate the building blocks most pertinent to them creating powerful insights and competitive advantages.”

Tim Trainor, Executive Director of Business Development, URS, said “We have found JLT Re’s culture and focus a great fit for URS; we are excited about this new relationship and the opportunity to develop ANSER with JLT Re. The drive to work from the ground up and understand the real needs of clients is refreshing and gives us complete confidence in the relevance and success of the work we are doing together.”

Mike Reynolds concludes, “Over the coming months we will be speaking to clients and updating the market on the development of ANSER.”
