SERVICES

CRM specializes in outsourced risk management services to organizations internationally. We help identify and analyze your exposures, coordinate the professional services needed to manage those exposures, and clearly and concisely communicate to agents, companies, vendors and senior staff the risk management information they need to protect the organization.


Risk Assessment

We often begin an assignment with an assessment of the organiztion’s risk. This entails two parallel projects; an Exposure Analysis and an Insurance Audit.

The Exposure Analysis is a detailed written survey of the organization’s operations including personal interviews and a review of selected business documents.

At the same time we conduct an audit of your current insurance policies to verify their accuracy in relation to hazards, and evaluate whether the policy terms and conditions are in line with the exposures.

  • Preparation of renewal specifications

    • Answering agent & insurance underwriting questions

      that needs to be refined and addressing open issues

Family Offices

Family Offices have become more prevalent to manage the assets of multiple generations. These assets have exposures and CRM has been fortunate to work with a number of family offices to assist in the management of these exposures.

While the exposures of Family Offices are unique to each entity, the risk management process used to manage the exposures are consistent; recognize the exposures to loss, identify multiple techniques to manage those exposures, select and implement the appropriate methods, and monitor to determine success.

Individual Risk Assessments

While organizations will expend significant resources to identify and manage their exposures to loss, executive leaders of these same organizations take precious little time in managing their personal assets.

CRM has worked with many of our clients' key executives to perform personal risk assessments and insurance reviews to determine if their exposures to loss are adequately protected and verify if they have the appropriate insurance.

CRM will then work with the executive's personal insurance agency to implement the recommendations

Expert Witness Work

CRM has worked with plaintiff and defense attorneys on insurance litigation issues. Our staff's background working as agents, underwriters and business owners provides us with a unique perspective we can offer counsel to help them develop their case.

The attorneys we have worked with have told us we have been very helpful in identifying key points in the case that are unique to the world of insurance that have helped solidify their arguments.
