Exactly how significant is your insurance buying decision?

Did you know that insurance is usually an organization’s 3rd or 4th highest expense? When managed well, it can create a competitive advantage for your company. This requires deep industry expertise by someone who is hired and compensated exclusively by you based on a flat fee…not an insurance company commission. Our outsourced risk management services are 100 percent fee based.

CIC will develop and implement a customized solution by incorporating the most efficient mix of risk avoidance, transfer and financing tools available. These services go beyond traditional insurance programs to deliver strategies that can boost your firm’s revenues, increase net income and bolster balance sheets. Nearly all of our consultants have at least one industry designation based on their experience, knowledge and attention to detail so we can offer true specialization with all types and sizes of clientele.
