Frequently Asked Questions

We are not looking to take the place of your insurance broker. Insurance brokers focus on insurance policy placement and are compensated based on the insurance you purchase for your company. Our team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of all your insurance policies to determine if they are adequate and cost-effective. Then we advise you on the best way to restructure your policies to capture cost savings. We are experienced, and ready to face both complex risk management and employee benefits challenges. Our fee-for-service compensation structure eliminates conflict of interest. We are on your side.
