A.M. BestTV: Axis Capital CEO: Market Ripe to Unlock New Risks

OLDWICK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

In this episode of A.M. BestTV, Albert Benchimol, CEO of Bermuda-based Axis (News - Alert) Capital Holdings Ltd., discusses market opportunities he sees for his company and the industry as a whole, such as using excess capital to take on new risks, or the potential to privatize government functions. Benchimol believes it's essential to apply its capital - especially with the rise of alternative capital and increased competition - to new economic sectors. Cyber liability and business contingency are two obvious areas, Benchimol said, as well as an increased role with in public insurance facilities, replacing the government on flood coverage, wind pools and terrorism. Regulation is also at the top of Benchimol's mind, but he cautioned against overlapping layers of regulation "that do not speak well to each other." Axis Capital provides specialty insurance and reinsurance. Click on to view the video program.
