Core Service Offerings

Risk Finance

Risk Financing involves risk-taking and the implementation of various funding structures other than traditional insurance.

This is the creation of a commercial mechanism which allows companies whose core product is not oriented around providing Financial Services and Financial Products (i.e. insurance) but who want to engage in these markets and types of products. Risk Financing allows the client to have access to these markets through a legal structure but also have access to the financial benefits directly.

There are country specific legislative constraints in this environment that create barriers to entry for the setup, consequent selling function and administration of these products. Therefore, Risk Finance allows for financial mechanisms which in turn affords the following possibilities:

1.    Partnership with those firms that are already appropriately licensed and experienced
2.    Loss and profits of the financial products to be accounted for separately
3.    Any loss incurred will not affect the core businesses operational capital
4.    To be able to receive profit share and/or dividends
5.    Self-regulating and independent revenue stream
6.    Individual reporting lines with external accountability

Most notable of these mechanisms is the Cell Captive and the Primary Cell/Contingency Policy.

Primary Cell / Contingency Policy   Cell Captive
Rental Ownership Sectional title ownership
Use of full Insurance License Use of full Insurance License
Own Insurance only Own Insurance plus third party Insurance
No Shareholders Agreement Shareholders Agreement
No formal capitalization or solvency Statutory capitalization
Ring Fenced results Ring fenced results

Product Design

Worldwide Advisory Services has over a decade of experience in designing bespoke insurance and VASP’s (Value Added Services Products) products for many listed and unlisted companies.

Our design methodology is based upon:

–    Gaining full understanding of our client’s product and objectives
–    Full research of the feasibility of the product through collaboration with our client and Insurer
–    Competitor Analysis (If applicable)
–    Market Interest and product viability analysis
–    Isolation of product distinctiveness and industry gaps
–    Necessary logistics and serviceability of product
–    Consistency with the client’s product specifications and scope
–    Pricing models
–    Compliance with all applicable legislation

Product Administration

A high-volume product cannot achieve its objective without a robust and efficient administration system. The advent of social media platforms and consumer protection websites has resulted in the consumer education and information level being at an all-time high.

To mitigate bad or non-complaint administration, correct and efficient administration of a product is essential.

This sought after level of administration is achieved through a combination of the following:

–    Clients need for immediacy which exists due to the “instant” culture of today
–    Clients need for convenience
–    Company’s understanding of their clients’ needs
–    Company’s understanding of the product that they have sold to their client
–    Company’s understanding of and implementation of legislation
–    Company’s understanding of client’s recourse and its effect on reputation
–    Empowerment and training of staff
–    Access to resources to assist clients in all circumstances

To administer a Financial product legislation has dictated that all those who would engage in the sale and/or the administration of a Financial product must be appropriately experienced and qualified.
