It's debatable if the fiduciary standard is 'higher' than suitability. But the better question might be, who's holding the bar?
Moorestown, NJ (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
A recent example of Epic's Excess Workers' Compensation for Public Entities follows. A small town with a population of about 40,000 had a guaranteed cost workers' compensation program in place. Their current insurance carrier raised the premium and was forcing a $150,000 deductible. Their broker searched for another first dollar program but was unsuccessful. The broker reached out to Epic Intermediaries, which provided several quotes for the town with a variety of different options to meet their budget. The feasibility study and policy analysis helped the broker and the town's risk manager navigate through a myriad of potential hurdles. Epic Intermediaries, leveraging their new Excess Workers' Compensation for Public Entities Over $500,000 Premium program, subsequently created an innovative excess program to replace the original first dollar program, potentially saving the town hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Epic's Excess Workers' Compensation programs and innovative approach to insurance helps public entities mitigate risk and optimize value. Both public entity risk managers and their brokers should contact Epic about this program.
