Sterling offers a diagnostic and consultative approach for uncovering and mitigating risk for individuals and businesses. It begins with a curiosity and desire to understand the inner workings of a business, otherwise, it is not possible to adequately perform exposure identification.

Sterling utilizes a variety of techniques to identify, measure, and reduce risk while enhancing an organization’s performance through non-insurance solutions. Each decision about how to manage risk is designed to improve your business’ bottom line.

Our consultative approach includes providing Commercial Insurance, Employee Benefits, and Personal Insurance as well as utilizing other risk mitigation tools and services to increase and protect our clients’ profits.

Risk Path Process

Our proven 5-step process, designed to effectively reduce commercial insurance premium costs will:
Identify exposures, analyze business and industry-specific risks, develop risk strategies, implement specific programs and provide ongoing monitoring of the plan. 


STEP ONE: Identify Exposures

The first and perhaps most crucial step of effective risk management is identifying exposures. Sterling Insurance Group’s Certified Risk Architects will invest the time to understand every facet of your business in order to help you and your team identify potential risks that may face your business. By evaluating the effectiveness of risk management programs, practices, and resources under real-world conditions, our Risk Path Process assures that your assets receive precisely the right type of protection.


STEP TWO: Analyze

Our team of Certified Risk Architects and Risk Engineers take a deep, head-first dive into your business to look at all risk factors of your industry and your business.


STEP THREE: Develop Strategies

Armed with a thorough understanding of your business, including your industry, corporate culture, and operating procedures, the Sterling Risk Team will have the foundation to move beyond insurance, exploring a spectrum of proven alternative strategies to minimize risk and reduce insurance costs.
Investing the time to gain this comprehensive understanding of your business and identify exposures will pay huge dividends, enabling us to precisely tailor strategies to fit the unique needs of your business.
