Our goal is to improve the profitability of your risk management program.
Where other firms may see segmented projects, we see connections between different areas and provide consultation with the entire PEO in mind.
Our Competitive Advantage
- We support PEOs across the spectrum of size, geography, and industry niches, with roughly 30% of the market represented as a client.
- We have worked with and/or know most of the major industry participants, be they insurance carriers, accounting and audit firms, brokers, risk management firms, management consulting firms, technology/analytics vendors, bankers, and private equity firms.

- We provide a wide range of services to those in the industry, including but not limited to: start-up support, GC-to-LD transition support, program development, carrier/vendor negotiation support, actuarial liability estimation and forecasting, development of pricing and predictive models, and buy-side and sell-side mergers & acquisitions (“M&A”) transaction advisory.
