With so many risks, it is important to purchase coverage for crucial liabilities that might create a significant or catastrophic lost.

We can help find the right solution for your company

With so many loss exposures that a company may face, buying a standard insurance policy may not be the best solution for use of your finances. An alternative risk solution may be a better use of those finances, due to frequency and severity of losses. A better solution maybe using an alternative risk solution that can cover loss exposure without increasing annual premiums. For instance, self-insurance plans allow your company to bear some of the financial risk without depending on an insurance policy. However, a self-insurance program isn’t for everybody and your advisor should work with you on the best solution for your company.

Pooling is another popular solution if you seek lower premiums. It involves joining other companies for a bigger buying power capable of bargaining lower premiums from major insurers. Companies can also come together and form their own insurance company (Risk Retention Groups) operated under state guidelines. There are several alternative risk solutions available. Our advisors will help you examine all alternative insurance solutions to identify those with quantifiable benefits for your business. We will also advise you of emerging risk solutions and other dynamics within the communications and technology sectors.
