“RIMS Ask a Peer” Connects Risk Professionals with Highly-Qualified Experts

May 19, 2020

NEW YORK (May 19, 2020) – To further support the world’s risk management community, RIMS, the risk management society®, launched Ask a Peer, a professional advisory program that links highly-qualified, recognized and Society vetted risk management leaders with professionals seeking support and guidance.

The RIMS Ask a Peer process starts with a personal conversation to discuss the level of support needed and desired goals. Once completed, RIMS will assign a qualified advisor and develop an outline that sets expectations and a timeline. The service is customizable and flexible to each arrangement and intends to complement existing risk management initiatives and teams.

RIMS Ask a Peer advisors possess diverse backgrounds and are prepared to address wide-ranging risk management and insurance-related matters. Each recruited advisor undergoes a group vetting process – conducted by RIMS – to assess their qualifications and areas of expertise.

Advisors are available for a variety of risk management issues and specialties, such as:

  • Establishing a risk management function
  • Effectiveness of risk management programs
  • Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program review  
  • Strategic Risk Management (SRM) integration tactics  
  • Risk assessment programs and methodologies
  • Developing business disruption and resiliency program
  • Mergers and acquisitions risk management
  • Insurance and alternative risk financing program reviews
  • Claims and safety management programs
  • Contractual risk transfer reviews

“With the weight of their organizations resting on many of their shoulders, the world’s risk management community must come together, share their experiences and do their part to help advance the profession,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “RIMS is fortunate to have a growing network of risk management thought-leaders who have demonstrated excellence throughout their careers and stand ready to support their fellow practitioners. We are excited to launch this advisory program and deliver this valuable resource to businesses of all sizes and in all industries.”

RIMS Ask a Peer program costs vary depending on the scope of the project and the risk professional assigned to assist. The service is available to both RIMS members and nonmembers. Advisory can be conducted virtually, via telephone or in-person depending on the terms of agreement.
