Analytical Services

Analysis of losses is an integral part of the Risk Management process. Services provided include:

Claims Analysis

Claims data is collated from various sources and tailored to your particular requirements. Our claims analysis helps identify where your risk management investments will have the most impact.

Our detailed claim reports identify loss frequency, loss ratios and common causes, enabling us to discuss emerging trends with you and identify and offer solutions.

Risk Retention Analysis

Our approach is built on a two-tier methodology that uses statistical and financial modelling techniques to evaluate the most cost-effective risk financing solution for an organisation.


Financial Analysis Stress Test (FAST) identifies and stress tests an organisation’s ability to accept and retain risk in an affordable sense, without materially prejudicing its financial position in any one year.


Advanced Risk Exposure Analysis (AREA) is a statistical method that analyses and interprets an organisation’s historical loss data.

Captive Feasibility

Lockton offers professional and specialist services to evaluate self-insurance strategies/alternative risk transfer methods in order to:

  • Reduce the exposure to the cyclical nature of  the conventional market, and
  • Contribute overall to a reduction in the cost of  risk.

Self-insurance strategies can range from informal solutions, such as paying for losses as they occur (balance sheet retention), to more formalised strategies such as cell captives and wholly owned captives.

We use a consultative process that analyses different captive options. The benefits are:

  • assists management in formulating an efficient risk financing programme that contributes to  the overall reduction in the cost of risk
  • contributes to greater earnings stability
  • decreases dependency on the general  insurance market
  • gives an understanding of, and enhances loss  information.
