Watching the Insurers

The credit crisis, particularly the government's bailout of mammoth insurer American International Group, increased risk managers' concerns about the creditworthiness of insurance companies. Now brokerage Marsh has launched a Web-based service to help companies keep tabs on the solvency of their carriers.

Marsh Market Information (MMI) provides ratings, financial analysis, news updates and other information on 1,500 insurance companies. Risk managers, who access MMI through a secure Web portal, can assemble a list of insurers they work with and track an array of information about them, including the performance of the stock of an insurer's parent company and where its credit default swaps are trading.
