Aon’s Peter Holz works in a very challenging area of commercial insurance: intellectual property. The space is difficult due to limited capacity, data paucity and a knowledge shortage on the topic by commercial insurance brokers.

Holz has been instrumental in helping to increase IP insurance marketplace capacity.

In just one example, Holz and his team assessed a large tech company’s IP exposures across hundreds of different product lines. Then they marketed the program to 70 insurance markets in three geographies. Through Holz’s persistence, new markets stepped in and offered their first intellectual property coverage ever for this client.

Not only is Holz creative and persistent, he also returns clients’ phone calls:

“Peter is extremely responsive to our queries and stays on top of the market to make sure that we are up-to-date with the latest on market intelligence,” said an admiring client.

“Peter significantly reduced our attachment points on our IP insurance program,” the client continued. “This was achieved through a mix of data analysis, market finesse and dogged perseverance. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve a better result with a different broker.”

“Peter is amazing,” said another client.

“I have worked with a lot of brokers in my time, but Peter is one of the best. Not only is he knowledgeable and practical, he’s always available.”
