Risk Management Consulting in Walnut Creek, CA and San Francisco, CA

Growth-minded business owners recognize that standardized insurance products only mitigate segments of the total risk they face, and not adequately in many cases. Truly effective risk management entails a comprehensive approach that considers all aspects of risk and addresses them with an integrated program of appropriate coverage, improved business practices, and smart financing. SMC excels at this strategic approach to risk management.

What We Do

  • Identify the risks your business faces from internal and external sources
  • Evaluate your historical losses and current exposures
  • Recommend strategies to reduce or eliminate your exposure, including alternative risk financing to help you manage costs effectively
  • Implement immediate action steps for critical protective measures
  • Oversee long-term risk control efforts and develop custom programs to improve your organization’s business practices that impact risk

How You Benefit

  • Increased visibility into your specific loss and cost drivers—the first step to managing them
  • Better business practices that make your workplace less prone to accidents, threats, and other causes of loss
  • Peace of mind that you are protecting your organization in a comprehensive way
