Earlier this year, Aon hosted the Intellectual Property-Backed Lending Forum to discuss how Aon is helping organizations access capital based on the value of their intellectual property (IP).
“Aon has put real muscle behind IP as a viable asset class; we’ve made investments to build out leading IP Solutions capabilities that enable Aon to unlock this untapped addressable market,” said Aon President Eric Andersen, who gave the keynote speech at the event. “Aon’s Collateral Protection Insurance (CPI) product is growing and becoming a programmatic source of capital for our clients – and new business for insurers. CPI has crossed the $1 billion threshold in IP-backed insurance enhanced debt financing. As exciting as CPI is, the possibilities for the insurance industry via IP are endless.”
Given the current economic environment, IP rich companies are working with Aon to leverage this significant source of enterprise value. and with the increased risk and complexity in today’s markets, organizations need to be more creative and effective in raising capital as insurance markets innovate to meet client needs with new solutions. The forum brought leaders and experts in the IP-backed lending ecosystem together to discuss insights, trends and challenges to help scale these solutions and improve deal and business outcomes.
