22 22 Many prior initiatives have failed – What is different this time? The maturity of standards and technical solutions is higher than during the times of RINET, the suffering from inadequate processes too Focus on non-competitive administration and information processes Exclusion of all quoting, placing and trading components which are by nature competitive and potentially in conflict with anti-trust law Avoidance of big startup investments – use existing data standards, message forms, interfaces and platform Choice of an experienced non-for-profit partner from the banking side: SWIFT Inclusion of leading brokers in pilot team (Aon, Benfield, Willis) Structuring as open market initiative without access or exit restrictions no hidden agenda

23 23 Where can the Rüschlikon Initiative help to reform the London Market? Short term: Global implementation of ACORD RLC standards Availability of joint message transmission platform Secure transmission of data and files Many peer-to-peer connections replaced by one SWIFT connection Acceleration of accounting processes and cash flow Longer term: Straight through processing of (re)insurance data Additional efficiency in the areas of settlement, pairing and payment Reduction of credit risk Process statistics and benchmarks Evolution of the business models (e.g. risk trading)
