Real Estate Risk Solutions
The services we provide for real estate accounts is not just rhetoric. They are daily activities designed with the input and assistance of our long-term clients. Examples include accounting and claim reports broken down by location, quarterly claim activity reports and claim review meetings, separate invoicing and coverage summary by location, contract reviews of many types and risk management site reviews.
- Oswald believes market knowledge and access leverage is most beneficial to obtain capacity and secure superior coverage at the most cost-effective price.
- We evaluate your portfolio and structure based on your needs, exposures and current insurance market conditions. Utilizing this approach will optimize your insurance terms and risk management program.
- We believe that size matters. Determining whether you should combine owned and non-owned managed properties or commercial and multi-family or hazardous and non-hazardous projects isn’t an easy question to answer.
As your claims advocate, we will assist you through the claims process. Loss reports and analysis can be provided annually, semi-annually or on a quarterly basis. We will provide periodic review of outstanding loss reserves held by insurers through loss reserve analysis.
- Claim reports can be sorted by year, by project, by line of business or by sold/active spreadsheets.
- We will meet with site managers to review procedures for claim reporting and documentation.
- Our clients provide testimonials that these meetings proactively reduced their costs and have been beneficial in increasing their bottom line.
