As independent brokers, we are not beholden to any particular insurance company, but to our clients.
We’re good at what we do because we live and breathe insurance — the technicalities of it, the art of it. Our team has more than 50 years of hands-on, front line experience making insurance work for our clients.
The Alliance Group
At The Alliance Group we are changing the paradigm of managing risk and insurance cost management. We believe that business owners have been underserved by insurance carriers and agents. They have been trained to treat the process of risk management and buying insurance the same as any other commodity. The message has been to focus on price instead of value and outcome. We believe that this is a misguided approach. After all, you could be paying the lowest price while leaving still your business and net worth greatly exposed. The Alliance Group has developed The Insurance Cost Management & Recovery™ Process (ICMR™); an alternative approach to managing risk and buying insurance that has delivered average expense reductions of 20%.
We believe the current process of buying insurance and managing risk leaves you vulnerable, creates barriers to what you want to achieve and wastes resources including money.
If you are interested in taking control of your risk management and insurance buying process we would like to have a conversation with you. Our success is measured by delivering risk management solutions that continuously optimize our client’s working capital, shareholder value, profit and competitive edge.
The Alliance Group is a division of Optisure Risk Partners LLC
