HUGinsure

A specialist insurance entity utilizing risk management strategies for
social impact investments

Dalberg and Hollard Insurance commit to creating HUGinsure, the world’s first social impact insurance entity. This initiative is in association with Aon and the Lloyd’s market. It will create a specialized risk assessment entity that will measure and manage risks associated with the funding of social impact organizations. It will apply tested rating methodologies and risk management principles to facilitate the underwriting of social impact funding. HUGinsure’s service will help funders assess the creditworthiness of social projects and organizations so they can deploy capital with confidence, accelerating the timely flow of funds to social organizations and preventing disruptions in their operations and impact. HUGinsure expects to accelerate over $400 million towards global development efforts by 2018.
