[this page | pdf | references | back links]

Alternative Risk Transfer (ART) is an umbrella term encompassing all ‘non-traditional’ ways that organisations can use to transfer risk to third parties.


In an actuarial context, it is particularly commonly applied to approaches that combine traditional insurance and reinsurance protection strategies with financial risk protection, often via the capital markets.
