Client Solutions: Risk Management


Since Wortham was founded nearly a century ago, one of the company's core strengths has been our focus on helping clients actively manage their risks.

As the business environment has evolved and become more complex, Wortham has continued to expand our line of risk management services and products.

Client Solutions: Risk Management

At Wortham, our team of seasoned professionals works in tandem with clients to minimize their cost of risk, which includes retained losses, insurance premiums, and administrative and risk management expenses. To achieve the lowest cost of risk, we analyze retained losses and develop loss forecasts. In addition, we design strategies that minimize collateral requirements and other ancillary expenses.

Wortham's team of experts has extensive experience in reviewing contracts to uncover potentially harmful issues.
