Bermudian re/insurer Aspen has launched environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration strategy Project Leaf, which will help provide information into the decision making process for its Credit and Political Risk (CPR) portfolio.

An example of this would be project finance for solar or wind assets.
Project Leaf was formed in the summer of 2020, and is led by Aspen’s Head of Credit and Political Risk, Dan Osman, alongside a team of underwriters and credit analysts across London, Singapore and Bermuda.
The team began with an investigation of ESG risk exposures across Aspen’s CPR portfolio, before engaging with clients to understand their own environmental, social and governance objectives.

Aspen’s CPR team will follow a developed framework for assessing and classifying underwriting transactions, allowing the team to report progress toward this goal.
To support progress, the working group, led by Osman, will also be launching initiatives that include a school mentoring scheme, a series of charitable partnerships, and an internal programme to reduce the Group’s carbon footprint.
Aspen’s Head of Credit and Political Risk, Dan Osman, said: “Project Leaf has set out to create a transparent roadmap for Aspen’s CPR portfolio that is closely aligned with the wider Group’s corporate objectives and ESG strategy.
“Several objectives are already locked in for delivery in the next five years and the team looks forward to reporting on its progress in line with the Group’s shift to make ESG integration a top-down strategic priority.”
