NEW YORK – March 31, 2016 – Due to declines in property and liability costs and overall risk management costs, businesses paid 2% less in 2015 than they did in 2014 to cover the total cost of risk (TCOR) – according to the 2016 RIMS Benchmark Survey. The Benchmark Survey, produced with Advisen, defines TCOR as the cost of insurance, plus the costs of the losses that are retained, and the administrative costs of the risk management department.

The annual RIMS survey, produced with Advisen Ltd., is a single source of benchmark statistics with industry data for more than 52,000 insurance programs from 1,457 organizations – including the programs of 197 Fortune 500 companies. It tracks changes in insurance policy renewal prices as reported by North American corporate risk managers.
“The tremendous growth of cyber risks and insurance options drove us to include a new section analyzing the market for cyber insurance. Risk managers will now have greater insight into the marketplace as well as the practices of their peers in purchasing this important coverage,” said Jim Blinn, Executive Vice President and Global Product Manager at Advisen.
“In order to innovate, organizations must first understand the costs, limitations and rewards of each new venture,” said RIMS President Julie Pemberton. “The Benchmark Survey is a highly-informative resource that shows an industry-by-industry breakdown of how organizations allocate funds to hedge specific risks.”
