Risk International Innovations

Risk Management - Risk International was the first risk management firm to successfully assume the entire risk management function of a Fortune 200 company.

It's original client, secured in 1986, remains with Risk International today.

Insurance Archeology - Risk International was among the first to develop expertise in “insurance archaeology” - the discipline of locating or reconstructing from secondary evidence a company’s lost insurance policies. Since 1987 Risk International has reconstructed more than $55 billion of missing policy limits for its clients.

Insurance Claims Recovery - Risk International was the first risk management firm to expand beyond insurance archaeology to also recover proceeds under reconstructed policies through direct private negotiation with insurers. Yearly Risk International recovers millions of dollars from insurers without the cost and distraction of litigation for its clients’ environmental and toxic tort liabilities.
