3 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 3 Support, not replace ELECTRONIC PLACING DATA EXCHANGE

4 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 4 What is this project all about? Simple The electronic transfer of contract change data between the broker and underwriter using ACORD Standards, via a central validator. What is this NOT? The removal of face to face broking, where it is perceived by a broker or underwriter to be adding value

5 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 5 Where did we start?

7 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 7 Practical steps in getting started Internal Put together business case – identify benefits Create a project plan with clear milestones Get senior level sponsorship Make decision on technology to be used Identify key stakeholders within business Create a project team – meet weekly Allocate set responsibilities within that team Decide on mode of communication internally Pick pilot area External Establish firm links with Market Project Managers Understand the project scope and deliverables Participate in relevant Market committees - EMG, MAT Group, PSIG, PSG Work closely with IT service providers Form working partnerships with underwriters Manage external expectations and comms

8 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 8 Route to implementation Testing: Connectivity - Are the simple messages getting through? - Can underwriters respond? Market Acceptance Testing 1 & 2 - Using agreed Market scripts Business Scenario Testing - Identifying, with practitioner input, the most appropriate trading scenarios

9 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 9 A journey of discovery What we found: MAT1 - some of our underwriting partners were not following the scripts - some underwriters only had one person responding - we had to completely repeat MAT1 - underwriters could respond without GUA instructions - underwriters able to enter narrative with an unconditional acceptance MAT2- If a Word version of the EMRCE was attached, underwriters could amend - Leader could say no to notifying contract changes to follow markets - It was possible to send a message without an accompanying document - Will be important to ensure contact names and email addresses updated

13 MarshLeadership, Knowledge, Solutions…Worldwide. 13 Final thoughts This is not simply about the electronic transfer of contract change messages Its the start of a much needed process improvement programme If we get this right, many of our post placing administrative problems will also be reduced The keying of risk data only once, sees the start of our desire to achieve STP This in turn brings about the potential for one data set being used not only for placing and contract changes, but for premium and claims processing also. Its not complicated
