Risk management

Risk Engineering – the Zurich way

Zurich’s risk management methodology is a process of continuous improvement and it starts with risk identification. Then, taking into account a number of factors, we assess and grade your exposures, which helps you prioritise and manage your risks. Our findings allow us to share relevant insights based on best practice, industry benchmarks and loss history. We will suggest risk improvement actions to help you mitigate the risks. The process then begins again to ensure that you always have an effective loss prevention strategy and improvement actions in place.

Offering a full range of services from on-site assessments to board-level advice, our team of risk engineers work in partnership with our global customers, often over many years, building up a wealth of in-depth knowledge and insights. This allows us to provide the best advice to help you protect the business you love and make more informed investment decisions around your risk management strategy.
