Insurance Risk / Loss Control

Bell Oldow provides underwriters with environmental risk analyses for single locations and multi-site portfolios. We have performed Site loss control on thousands of properties across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, as well as Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe. Our deliverables incorporate review of provided documents and, as necessary, original research with regulatory databases, state and federal regulators and historical resources.

We focus on providing the right information for the right price. As is typical with this business, we scope client needs, align engineering costs and agree on completion timeframes upfront. Our goal is to facilitate your understanding of the risk and provide you with an opinion to support sound underwriting decisions.

Our Loss/Risk Control Spreadsheet for multi-site portfolios is an industry best model. No two Site portfolios are alike in terms of property risk types, data availability, and data quality. We fulfill predetermined underwriting needs and highlight the likelihood and severity of Site risk via color-coded and highly descriptive risk ratings. We also include migration measures for consideration to manage risk and minimize losses.

For added value to your underwriting process, we also deliver a secure personal link to your underwriting data (properties and documents) organized, mapped and visually presented in Griptiller software.
