Why Corporates and Reinsurers need to take Port Accumulation Seriously

Port Accumulation needs to be viewed as an essential part of risk mitigation for (re)insurers and corporates as we explain in our new report.

Ports just like airports are now becoming a crucial cog for many economies, with many countries' economic growth dependent on the trade that flows in and out of their countries.

Over the last few decades, the dollar value of trade entering these ports has risen exponentially and become concentrated into over 50 ports ranging from Rotterdam to Shanghai.

Yet, analysis of port accumulation as it currently stands does not have the breadth and depth that is needed to tackle this issue.

Currently, there is not a solution or system that analyses global trade flow and then seeks to understand the exposure breakdown of that trade at a country, company, port, commodity and operator level.

Our new port accumulation report outlines why such a system needs to be viewed as an essential part of risk mitigation for (re)insurers and corporates.

For Your Information

We have recently set up a new account system as part of our new website launch and we have received some questions about the account, so we wanted to take the time to answer your questions.

The new free account log-in system on the website is designed to allow you to access all of Russell Group's white papers, infographics and collateral with ease and little hassle. It allows you to bookmark articles and it view more dedicated content (e.g. aviation articles, marine articles) on the Russell Thinking page.

The details that you give us will not be given to any third-party groups and you can opt out of all Russell emails and still enjoy using the new site and downloading Russell collateral.
