“While the RIMS Benchmark Survey monitors changes in insurable risk costs and financing methods, it also provides valuable insight into the range of significant losses that affect organizations including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Environmental Penalties, False Claims Act, and Shareholder lawsuits,” Jim Blinn, Executive Vice President at Advisen commented. “With the growth of Enterprise Risk Management, understanding the breadth of exposures and their impacts becomes increasing important.”

“The value of risk management and its impact on an organization’s sustainability has emphasized the importance of developing comprehensive risk financing programs. However, the task of developing such programs has become more challenging as programs become more complex,” said RIMS President Carolyn Snow. “Benchmarking the total cost of risk gives risk managers an undeniable advantage when structuring their risk financing programs, especially in today’s competitive insurance market.”
