RIMS Benchmark Survey Contribution

Contribute to the 2020 RIMS Benchmark Survey

2020 RIMS CoverWhat is the RIMS Benchmark Survey?

The annual RIMS survey, produced with Advisen Ltd., is a single source of benchmark statistics with industry data for thousands of insurance programs from hundreds of organizations – including the programs of hundreds of Fortune 500 companies. It tracks changes in insurance policy renewal prices as reported by North American corporate risk managers.

TCOR is the cost of insurance, plus the costs of the losses that are retained, and the administrative costs of the risk management department. As the insurance market becomes increasingly competitive, risk managers are turning to TCOR benchmarking as an important strategy to design and evaluate their organizations’ risk financing programs.

For more than two decades, the RIMS Benchmark Survey has been offering insurance professionals a wealth of statistical information that allows them to compare their program to similar companies. The publication is made possible by collecting policy data from organizations annually.
