The Benefits to Lowering Contractual Risk

Your knowledge and ability to guide your clients, prospects, or company by lowering their risk and getting them better insurance terms will allow you to write more business and retain your best clients (as an agent/broker), reduce your company's long-term costs (as a risk manager), or give your clients much stronger legal protection (as a legal professional).

We will show you exactly how to do that and give you the tools to make it as fast and easy as possible.

Less Exposure to Loss

Pushing back on contract terms from upstream parties and transferring risk to downstream ones reduces frequency and severity of a loss.

Better Insurance Coordination

Ensure the coverage matches what is being requested and reduce the chance of a surprise problem when there is a loss.

Enhanced Renewal Results

Reduced risk for the client is reduced risk for the carrier. Show them how your client is best-in-class so that you can get better terms.

Who Is Contract Risk Academy For?

Agents & Brokers

We are dedicated to serving agents and brokers who take a risk management-approach to insurance. We strongly believe that insurance is one of many forms of risk management, and the best way to impact a client's insurance program long-term is to implement proactive strategies to lower their risk profile.

The advisors who practice risk management (and don't just say it to sell an insurance policy) are the ones who can make a material impact on their client's performance. They can create a safer and more effective business and are a true partner to their clients.

Diving deep into the art of Contract Risk Management gives you an opportunity to be equipped with a very powerful tool in your risk management toolbox. It is an area where your competitors likely only skim the surface, and yet it has arguably the greatest impact of any proactive strategy you can take.
