Account Servicing

TaveRM manages all aspects of your account, delivering superior customer service at each step of the insurance process. Our insurance proposal clearly shows the insurers' terms and conditions as well as security requirements.

  • Binds the insurance coverage with the insurers.

As part of our full-service approach, TaveRM reviews and processes audits and, if needed, requests correcting endorsements from the insurers. We help you assess the overall financial impact by assisting with budgeting and premium allocation. Finally, TaveRM continues to earn your business by regularly reviewing your program. If you've experienced changes in your operations that impact risk, we quickly modify your plan to reflect your needs.

$5 billion+ real estate portfolio with $8 million in property premium was faced with a choice of increasing costs or reducing coverage and limits. TaveRM structured a more stable program, reducing premium while maintaining a high level of coverage.

Client Facts:

  • National Real Estate Portfolio
  • Total Insured Values of $5,000,000,000+
  • 40% of properties are habitational or multi-family exposure

Goals:

  • Reduce premium to a more manageable level
  • Provide a multi-year program with rate guarantees
  • Instill stability by including a panel of Bermuda/London/European and U.S.-based markets

Challenge: Client was facing premiums in excess of $8 million annually, making it difficult to competitively bid for new properties. In order to reduce costs, client was reducing limits and non-renewing some key coverages.

Business Solution: Tave Risk Management worked with the client properties to better define construction, occupancy, protection, and exposure information - refining secondary characteristics of each location. We closely reviewed locations in "catastrophic" areas, such as California, Florida, and Tier 1 in Texas to be certain that Quake and Flood Zones were accurately stated.

Working with over a hundred markets in the US, Europe, London and Bermuda, we crafted a very competitive and stable insurance program reflecting our clients' conservative risk appetite.

Results: We secured premium savings of over $1 million on the program. Design improvements including a multi-year rate cap agreement and worldwide insurer participation were used to create a stable long-term program that was very responsive to the clients' needs.

International firm having $3.5 billion in sales had incurred mass tort litigation due to asbestos and environmental exposures held by acquired entities. TaveRM managed these claims exposures while successfully negotiating coverage with past insurers.

Client Facts:

  • Global Manufacturing Business
  • Active in mergers and acquisitions
  • Total revenue of $3,500,000,000

Goals:

  • Manage client's mass tort litigation and claims reporting
  • Negotiate insurance coverage for exposures
  • Oversee and monitor cost sharing arrangements with insurers

Challenge: Large global manufacturer had engaged in numerous acquisitions over the past 15 years. Some entities that they purchased had products with alleged asbestos and environmental exposures that could potentially harm the Corporation's financials.

Business Solution: TaveRM worked with the client to gather past records and insurance policies potentially providing coverage. We summarized historical insurance information and identified viable past insurers. Claims were notified to the insurers.

Partnering with the client's legal department and outside counsel, we negotiated cost sharing agreements with viable insurers. On an on-going basis, we monitor the payments required by each insurer in the cost-sharing agreements.

Results: A potentially volatile mass tort exposure has been controlled and largely funded with insurer dollars, saving our client significant costs.
