What Makes You So Special

 

While a variety of factors can affect a business's need to seek specialized assistance - The common driving factor is quite simply, ever increasing complexity.

  • Increased industry litigation
  • Consistently large plaintiff awards
  • Restrictive availability of quality coverage terms and pricing
  • Extensive portfolio of contractual obligations
  • Lack of ubiquitous understanding of industry
  • Severity of loss exposure
  • Compliance with stringent public & environmental safety compliance & costs
  • Specialty customer base
  • Supply chain risks
  • Organic growth in complexity due to size - incorporates a number of the above, and more

Regardless of the reason - it is imperative that companies work with professionals having vast experience and knowledge in the structuring and placement of insurance for the risks at-hand.  

In some circumstances a business might simply outgrow its current representation or coverage. In fact, this happens with great frequency however is particulary difficult to identify from an inside (policyholder) perspective. Many times recognizing the need for change occurs only when there is either a change of control in the business or, unfortunately, after a loss.

For many businesses 

Insurance purchasing-as-usual is an insufficient and outdated approach. The traditional agent or broker relationships are old fashioned while insurance sales is volume driven and transactional - movement of a product - akin to a distribution operation.

Present day, the increasing complexity of all business & indsutry is overwhelming buyers and brokers alike creating the need for specialization. The forefront approach to insurance purchasing involves observing exposures, idenitfying & researching risks, tracking developments, and making various management decisions of whether to retain, transfer, or avoid particular risks. Electing to use insurance as a transfer method requires scrutiny of the insuring contract to ensure alignment with expectations and goals, and doing so requries a complete understanding of the industry and surrounding landscape.

The critical question for all insurance buyers is, "what is your decision making criteria?". Determining the criteria requires and understanding of exposures, risks and what is achievable in the commercial insurance marketplace.
