Specialty Services: Insurance Archaeology, Historic Insurance Program Assessment & Reconstruction

 

Since 1985, IAG has documented hundreds of billions of dollars of prepaid insurance assets, enabling clients to maximize recoveries for environmental, toxic tort and a variety of other long tail liabilities. Decades of mergers and acquisition activity combined with a steady onslaught of emerging liabilities and heightened environmental law enforcement have ensured that insurance archaeology – now more than ever – is a best practice for risk management. Over the past 25 years, IAG has developed many of the techniques and protocols which have become the standards for conducting an historic audit of a company’s past coverage.

 

In reconstructing a coverage history, IAG staff digs exhaustively through corporate records, tracks down and interviews former employees and identifies a variety of leads to potential outside sources of records.  This forensic research, in conjunction with IAG's knowledge of underwriting practices, familiarity with the the history of consolidation within the insurance industry and their extensive longstanding contacts, ensure that the most assets are located.

 

A broad range of organizations rely on IAG’s services.  They represent all industry sectors from basic manufacturing to financial services and include Fortune 500 companies, small to mid-size companies, utilities, government agencies, religious/non-profit organizations and municipalities.

Historic Insurance Audit

Current business conditions have heightened the difficulty of conducting an historic insurance audit. IAG has adapted its research efforts accordingly. While the task is more challenging than ever, the massive expansion of information available on the Internet coupled with enhanced data-mining techniques have improved the ability to track down missing coverage.

Historic Insurance Portfolio

Once a coverage chart is complete, it is not unusual for the total cumulative policy limits to exceed $1 billion. The graphic illustration of a total portfolio of historic insurance assets can dramatically convey the magnitude of a potential recovery to senior management and ultimately save thousands of hours of staff time in negotiations with insurers.
