Investment banking for the insurance industry
Willis Towers Watson Securities is a leading investment banking boutique focused exclusively on the insurance industry. We provide a broad range of services that combine unparalleled industry knowledge with analytical expertise, including strategic advisory, capital raising and insurance-linked securities.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Willis Towers Watson, we offer a differentiated value proposition to clients operating in the (re)insurance sector. Our ability to provide a truly comprehensive and coordinated suite of M&A advisory services is based on delivering Willis Towers Watson Securities’ established world-class insurance M&A execution capabilities in concert with analytical, actuarial, brokerage, rating agency, risk management consulting and other services from other areas within the broader Willis Towers Watson organization.
We operate at the forefront of innovation within the insurance sector, evidenced by our track record of executing landmark transactions across various segments of the insurance value chain including the first sale of a U.S. public insurance company to a China based acquirer, the first full company sale of an ILS investment manager to a strategic (re)insurer and the establishment of Resilience Re, the first turn-key cat bond lite platform providing issuers with access to a pre-selected pool of leading alternative capital investors.
