Aurous was founded in 2018 in response to the very apparent need to repair the (re)insurance value chain. The distribution chain had become too long and convoluted to properly service (re)insurance buyers and capital providers best interests. The underlying product itself wasn’t flawed, the way it’s delivered to market needed to change and was simply incurring too much distribution cost on its way to market. Aurous founding risk partners had worked at various points in the insurance distribution chain throughout their careers and felt a new approach was needed to provide more efficient matches between insurance buyers and capital.
Since Aurous’ inception we have been focused on underwriting profitable portfolios of business utilising unique and efficient capital structures that ultimately deliver better value to our clients and market beating return on capital figures to our capacity partners. We intend to continue to innovate and provide solutions to our clients and capacity partners to ensure that we continue to provide more direct and efficient matches between risk and source capital.
