Peter Cheesman – Head of Analytics, Aon Asia Pacific
Peter Cheesman position at Aon is Head of Analytics for Asia Pacific. There is a large focus on bespoke client solutions covering aspects related to natural catastrophe analysis particularly in providing direct pricing or underwriting solutions to enable insurers to technically factor in the loading’s for catastrophes.
Previously at Guy Carpenter I lead the analytical team, GC Analytics, covering Australia and New Zealand. I was also responsible for heading Guy Carpenters Asia Pacific Model Development team. Joined Guy Carpenter, Sydney in January, 2006 from Glencairn in London, where I was head of the Risk Modelling department and responsible for the catastrophe and actuarial modelling platform and solutions. Previously, worked with Guy Carpenter in London, where I led the Instrat unit’s catastrophe modelling services team.
With a Science and geographical degree, initially I specialised in the analysis and development of products and models related to natural catastrophes, particularly Asia Pacific earthquakes and UK/Europe flood tools. I also provided critical reviews of many of the commercial catastrophe models available today. In this time I have been responsible for the development of many bespoke modelling solutions from property risk through to personal accident assessment, including the lead development role on award winning personal accident product CASUS now a product in AIR portfolio. Also led the development of industry leading underwriting data platforms and products used by many insurers in Australia and New Zealand.
Climate change and future looking quantification of the impacts is central to my current remit. Not only from in-depth risk analytics but also in stress testing business strategies that might be impacted by future climate scenarios both from a physical and transitional risk perspective.
I hold a Master of Science Degree from the University of Nottingham, UK
