How a conversation with your insurance broker can make an impact.

Chances are you’ve heard us share information regarding the rise of insurance rates. We always do what we can to educate each client we serve because helping our customers protect their business in the event of a loss is of the utmost importance to us!


What Is Causing Rising Insurance Rates

It’s no secret that insurance rates have been on the rise for quite some time. Let’s take a look at what is causing them:

  • The dramatic rise in natural disasters
  • A reduction in the availability of skilled labor due to COVID
  • Aging infrastructure in major metropolitan areas
  • Increased and continued community development
  • Increased demand for building supplies
  • Supply chain issues
  • Historic inflation occurring in the United States

Inflation in particular has a direct correlation to rising insurance rates and currently inflation in the United States has reached historic rates – the highest it has been since June of 1982. It is important to make sure your business is protected!


Many Businesses Are At Risk Of Being Under Insured

According to a new survey from the American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) many business owners have not taken steps to ensure that their insurance coverage will be adequate should they suffer a claim. The survey revealed:

57% of Business Owners report they have NOT increased their policy limits to account for inflation.

40% of Business Owners admit they do NOT fully understand their insurance coverage.

22% of Business Owners say they have NOT have purchased insurance for their business.

It is vitally important that business owners take steps now to ensure that they have the coverages they need. Moments after a natural disaster has occurred is too late! With hurricane season on the horizon it makes sense to pick up the phone and have a conversation with your insurance broker!
