Mapping and optimisation of working capital at a claim-handling firm for insurance companies after acquisition by a PE investor
A previous cash rich processor of insurance claims was confronted by marginal losses and increasing liquidity pressure. Some divisions within the organisation where used to operate within the safety of large Dutch insurance companies and after becoming an independent company, management was not able to control the liquidity anymore. The firm was acquired by a large foreign private equity investor in 2017. The investor hired external consultants to map the working capital positions of the different entities and find out which possibilities for optimisation there where. In the second half of 2018, Beaufort and a foreign partner consultancy firm cooperated during the implementation of the optimisation project with as goal a €10m working capital reduction.
