Corporate Protection Group
There are enough risks in today’s business world. Your insurance policy shouldn’t be one of them. At Corporate Protection Group, our mission is to help organizations and their business leaders achieve success by identifying unknown exposures and reducing or removing them.
A vital component of risk management.
The insurance industry has evolved into a transaction-based relationship. This is certainly a far cry from the original spirit of insurance and risk management, where forming strong personal relationships drove value beyond insurance costs.
Corporate Protection Group was established in 2006 to address this gap in the marketplace and focus on what we enjoy most – driving value for our clients. We don’t follow the traditional insurance advisor model. We’ve developed a unique, client-focused approach that is designed to simplify and demystify the insurance experience. By opening communication lines with insurance markets, we fulfill a commitment to create and preserve a transparent relationship with our clients and their insurance representatives. We guide companies by making certain their insurance programs adequately protect their financial interests, creating a foundation for long term growth and financial success.
Corporate Protection Group specializes in working with large organizations that have complex risk profiles, own or manage substantial physical assets, or have insurance premiums in excess of $250,000. Our team has extensive expertise in the following industries:
- Real Estate
- Private Equity
We do not sell any insurance products, nor do we receive commissions or compensation of any kind from brokers or insurers. We only work for you.
The complexities of insurance can be overwhelming, but the steps to obtaining proper coverage are simple. A company’s insurance program must be linked to the unique needs and risks of the business for insurance to respond effectively. At Corporate Protection Group, we develop an insurance plan by synchronizing our clients’ business strategy and accompanying risks. We assess existing exposures, analyze coverage gaps, and monitor insurance requirements to allow the insurance program to evolve with the needs of any growing business.
