About CCA

Coherent Capital Advisors (CCA) is a specialized analytics and advisory team focused on asset liability management, risk & capital management, and advanced analytics.

We differentiate ourselves by being a small, focused team that can be hands-on and work side-by-side with our clients in the insurance and asset management industries.

Our philosophy

We believe in truly customized, comprehensive solutions rather than ‘one-size-fits-all’ packages. At Coherent, we listen carefully to understand your needs before working with you to develop efficient and effective solutions.

We don’t carry legacy systems, we strongly believe in leveraging technological advances, and we maintain low overheads which allows us to focus on what is important to our clients.

Insurtech Innovations

The insurance shopping experience is consistently falling short of customers’ expectations in this digital age.

We want to change that.

We're interested in the whole customer journey: from the ways in which products are marketed, distributed, presented and recommended - and what data is collected at each stage - to shortlisting products that can add the most value to customers. Our simple belief is that considerate use of new data and technologies, coupled with the traditional human element, will be what moves the industry forward.
