About Us

Insurance is an industry where data and analytics are crucial to success, but finding, assessing and using the right data is all too often a challenge.
Finaccord cuts through this by providing high-quality, actionable data and insights that are available nowhere else.  We do this by combining our own analysis, knowledge from the Aon network and a huge range of external sources.  We bring the resulting insights to the industry through innovative data visualization tools, reports and consulting projects.  
Finaccord is part of Aon's Strategy and Technology Group.
