Risk Review Process

A risk review is critical to understanding the intricacies of your internal and external environment and operations. We strive to be your expert advisor and strategic partner. Without an intimate understanding of your operation, we would not be in a position to offer the expertise you should expect from your broker.

The first step in achieving this objective is to conduct a risk review. We propose an executive planning meeting to gain a deeper understanding of your organization, its philosophy, risk appetite, and risk management goals. We also need to meet and introduce ourselves to your key staff and define roles and executive reporting protocols.

We understand you have worked with Angus in the past and he does have an understanding of your business already, but the team around him is new to your organization and has to invest the time needed to provide you with relative expert advice.

Once we have an understanding of your business objectives, we will review your insurance program to ensure it is in line with those objectives and congruent with your risk appetite.

The coverage review is a very technical analysis of your current insurance program and identification of areas for improvement. This will include a review limits, structure and deductible levels and include a benchmarking exercise, which will be a series of graphs and information from various industry-specific sources.

The findings of the coverage audit will be collected and presented to Thurber in a document, which will include an outline of the current coverage, any applicable gaps in coverage, and recommendations or solutions. The recommendations will be collectively discussed, prioritized and tracked to ensure they are implemented appropriately.

The process will be broken down into phases allowing appropriate time for each step. Accountabilities will be assigned to ensure the transition is carefully planned out in advance and the process is simple and smooth. The next page identifies the proposed and continued process we can use as a starting point.
