Alternative Risk Transfer (ART)
ART grew out of a series of insurance capacity crises between the 1970s and 1990s that drove purchasers of traditional coverage to seek more robust ways to buy protection. ART allows individual contractors to select cover that best suits their risk profile, giving them freedom to finance that risk utilising non-conventional and flexible insurance-style structures.
