We are distinctly aligned with our clients in navigating the insurance landscape, with a no commission, fee-for-service model that eliminates the conflict of interest often found in brokerage firms.

We apply industry intelligence, creative thinking, and a fearless approach to helping businesses convert risk to opportunity.

Our clients gain critical advantage through a reduced total cost of risk, increased profitability, and the peace of mind that comes with a more stable and predictable risk management model.

business goals.

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.
