# New Benchmarking Factors for RiskPro®

We've been testing several new factors recently which will now be included in our RiskPro technology benchmarking production platforms. Organizational behavior diagnostics have long been part of the "soft" sciences of risk analytics. We have now correlated several new algorithms to our databases to show that organizational behavior, attitudes, and culture have an enormous effect on reducing loss costs over the long term. Our analytics, findings, and assistance have led to significantly reduced loss costs, and therefore program costs for numerous organizations during the past year. Additionally, we are partnering with several companies to assist in the continuous monitoring of programs for optimal performance. Call us for a free consultation to determine if your organization would benefit from our specialty risk programs.

Integrated Claim Settlement Assets

As many of you know, we have spent the last two years investing in the acquisition and development of claim settlement products and services that allow clients to compress casualty costs. Our products and services now include Advanced Risk Analytics and Benchmarking, Expert Compensatory Damage Studies, Life Care Planning, Medicare Set-Asides (MSA), Structured Settlements, Custodial MSA and Life Care Accounting, and Special Needs Trust Development. We will provide a free analysis to determine if any of these products and services may assist you eliminating cost, waste, and/or redundancy from your risk and claim management programs.

Recognized MSA Risk and Claim Products and Customer Service

We are very pleased to report that we have been recognized and recommended by A.M. Best in their directories of Expert Service Providers and Third Party Administrators for 2011. Additionally, our membership in the National Alliance of Medicare Set-Aside Professionals (NAMSAP) allows us to keep track of all the latest trends in the MSA industry. We would be very happy to assist you with your most difficult risk and claim matters.
